Easy Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

Was needing a quick and easy appetizer the other day, and (as often seems to be the case) was craving pesto.  So decided to just make a batch of easy pesto stuffed mushrooms!  It is hardly a recipe to post — just mushrooms, your favorite pesto, and you can top them with a variety of little garnishes.  But they were so cute and delicious that I thought they were worth sharing.

I’m counting down the days until I can start growing basil plants again.  Summer is almost here!!!
