Recipe Ingredients:

2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

1/4 cup light mayonnaise

1 tbsp canola oil

8 whole pieces portabella mushrooms, raw

12 ounces (about 8 medium slices) sourdough bread

4 slices (1 oz each) provolone cheese

2 cups jarred sweet red peppers halves, drained

4 large romaine lettuce leaves, raw

Salt and pepper (to taste)


Stir basil, walnuts, and mayonnaise in small bowl to blend. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, rounded side up. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté 4 minutes. Turn mushrooms over. Cover and sauté until mushrooms are tender, about 4 minutes. 


While mushrooms are cooking, place 2 slices sourdough bread on each plate and cover each with a slice of cheese. Lightly toast bread (with cheese) in toaster oven. Transfer to plates. Spread sourdough bread with ¼ pesto mayonnaise mixture.


Place two mushrooms on each sandwich. Top each sandwich with 1 slice romaine lettuce and ½ cup red pepper halves. Place top of bread over and serve.
