crab-stuffed mushrooms

Based off this recipe

Mince 1 small onion, 1/2 red bell pepper, 2 cloves garlic, 1 jalapeno pepper, and the stems from 1 carton Crimini mushrooms. Saute in butter until cooked through and dry. Add 1 can Trader Joe’s canned crab meat, rinsed and drained. Cook a few minutes longer. Stir in about a tablespoonful of minced cilantro leaves. Take off heat and let cool.

When the vegetables have cooled down, mix in 1/2 container of Tofutti (trans fat free) cream cheese and 1 egg, salt, pepper, and about 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Spoon into the mushroom caps. The extra can go into the remaining 1/2 bell pepper.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line oven tray with foil. Put the mushroom caps in and bake for about 1/2 hr to 45 mins, until the top is brown. If I had remembered, I would have reserved some Parmesan to sprinkle on top.
