    1. Remove stems from mushrooms and finely chop stems.
    2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; cook and stir chopped mushroom stems, shallot and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour wine into the pan; cook and stir mixture using a wooden spoon until liquid is evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Cool mixture to room temperature, about 10 minutes.
    3. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
    4. Brush the olive oil mixture over the top each mushroom and place, top-side up, on a baking tray. Mix pesto and pine nuts with the mushroom stem mixture together in a bowl; spoon into each mushroom. Sprinkle shredded cheese blend over the filling.
    5. Cook mushrooms on the preheated barbecue until edges are blackened and stuffing is bubbling, about 10 minutes.

    This was delicious! I usually hate mushrooms but I adored this. I had an avocado on the side and it made a good meal.  -  17 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I cooked 2 large portabellos in a grill pan on the stove - 3 minutes on the gill side then flipped them, added the stuffing and cooked the top side 12 minutes. The Italian cheese I used was mozzarella because that's what I had. They were delicious as the main course of our meatless dinner. Thanks for a great recipe.  -  18 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
