Portobello mushrooms make great bases for savory goat cheese and pine nut fillings.
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the mushrooms on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in pine nuts, basil, and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
3. Spoon the mixture into the mushrooms. Top each with a slice of goat cheese. Wrap a pancetta strip around each mushroom, tucking the ends underneath.
4. Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the pancetta is crisp. Serve immediately.
Good with mixed green salad and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Prepare ahead: The stuffed mushrooms can be prepared in advance and refrigerated for up to 8 hours before baking.
