Mom's Italian Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

One of those must haves on the table for the Holiday.
 Stuffed mushrooms are one most asked for in our family. This is mom's recipe.
I promise you, they won't last long so make a double batch!

12 to 14 extra large white mushrooms cleaned and stems removed or 22 medium sized.
1/2 cup Romano Cheese grated
1./2 cup white wine
2 cloves garlic finely minced
 extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cayenne pepper

Clean mushrooms remove stems, place them in a baking dish lightly sprayed with cooking oil. Chop three of four mushroom stems place in a bowl with grating cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, salt and peppers. Add 1/3 cup olive oil. Mix together. Stuff mushrooms caps. Drizzle olive oil over the tops.

Pour wine around the bottom of mushroom cap and bake on 350 degree hot oven,  until browned and crisp on top.  Around 30 minutes.

Options: add 6 chopped shrimps into the bread crumbs or 1/2 cup loose fried and drained sausage added to the stuffing.. Top with shredded mozzarella and bake until cheese melts.
