Mushrooms are one of my favorite kind of veggies, but the strange thing is, I honestly cannot remember the last time I had them. But when I saw this awesome baked recipe over at Simple Provisions, I just had to make that emergency grocery run to get my mushroom fix. No, not that kind of fix. The fix that’s baked in its own juices with freshly grated Parmesan cheese – my ultimate weakness!
