These stuffed mushrooms boast a savory filling made with browned and crumbled sweet Italian sausage and Parmesan cheese. The mushrooms are not only delicious; they're low carb! If you or your guests are following a low carb regime, these mushrooms are an excellent choice. 

Feel free to use a hot and spicy Italian sausage or chorizo in the filling, or add a dash of cayenne pepper to heat them up.
