These were delicious.  Like really really delicious!  I haven’t eaten pizza for a long time and these mushrooms were a perfect substitute.  I made a pesto using arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, and walnuts.  The arugula was a nice change from using basil.  A bit spicy!  And the walnuts were the perfect compliment.  They add a hearty texture along with an earthy richness.  I even got the Cia stamp of approval!  I thought maybe the arugula and sun dried tomatoes would be too flavorful for her, apparently not.  I love my foodie girl.
