This sounds delicious! Wondering what makes it 12 g of carbs? I'm thinking it might be largely due to the fat free italian dressing, assuming there's sugar in it - wondering if I could just use olive oil and dried herbs?
Considering I grew up eating the fatty stuffed mushrooms with crab and cream cheese/swiss cheese - these were quite good! I had this with a grilled chicken breast and was very satisfied! My boyfriend thought it could use more cheese... told him next time I'll mix in cream cheese with his filling and add more motzza on top.

Loved it! Next time will add more garlic for a zestier flavor. My boyfriend also gives it a thumbs up! :)

Will definitely be making these again. Skipped the chicken and used a little shredded mozzarella instead of grated.

Enjoyed this thoroughly. Needed 12 oz spinach for 2 mushrooms. Skipped peppers and chicken, added diced cooked potatoes for vegetarian meal.
