Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Risotto


While my two year old can eat pretty much the exact same thing every week, Momma needs some variety!  So, I decided to branch out a bit.  This recipe is really great, as it takes minimal extra effort to make something new and visually pleasing for me, whilst making Myles his comfort food.

Plus, I still have pesto in the house.  Waste not, want not!
