Italian Herb-Stuffed Mushrooms

My family has been making stuffed mushrooms since I can remember eating savory foods. They look tedious to make, but I promise you they are super simple. I only cut off the stem to use in the stuffing, not the core of the mushroom. I think it makes the recipe easier, less messy and I don’t have to worry about cracking the mushroom core. This is perfect for parties, but works great as a side dish to steak, fish or chicken dinners.
