We always marinate our portabellas before grilling because it adds a ton of flavor to the mushrooms. The marinating step is optional in this stuffed mushroom recipe, but if you have time to do it, it’ll make them that much better. You can use any vinaigrette to marinate them – either store-bought or homemade.
