Artichoke and Cream Cheese Stuffed Portabellas

This is so yummy. It is an alternative to meat that is healthy and delicious. Portabella mushrooms are a great substitute for beef and is much cheaper. This recipe is also very quick. I served these with steamed broccoli tossed with lemon juice and a fruit salad.

12 oz. cream cheese (can be low fat)
1/4 c sour cream (low or nofat is fine)
2-3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup diced artichoke hearts
1 oz. parmesan cheese
1 green onion, thinkly sliced
1/4 cup GF or regular breadcrumbs mixed with 2 tsp. italian seasonings
4 large portabella mushroom caps
4 slices of provolone cheese (can be low fat)

Mix all the ingredients though green onion using a mixer. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Clean mushrooms and remove the stem at the base. Place stem side up on baking sheet. Divide the cheese mixture evenly between the mushrooms and spread to edges. Sprinkle each with 1/4 breadcrumb mixture. Bake 5-10 min. until crumbs are golden. Top with cheese slice and bake 10-15 more minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Makes 4 servings.
