20 fresh mushrooms, stems removed
½ lb crab meat
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 tablespoons dried parsley

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch-baking dish.
Arrange mushroom caps hollow side up in the baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together minced crab meat, garlic,
Parmesan cheese, onion, breadcrumbs, green bell pepper,
parsley, Italian-style seasoning and black pepper. Slowly stir
in approximately 1/2 the butter, enough to make the
mixture slightly moist.

mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Drizzle with
Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
