Portobello Mushrooms with Red Wine Reduction

We got these beauties in our produce mix this week.  I make mushrooms this way as salad toppings, a side, mixed in pasta or a delicious topping to a steak or chicken.  They are SO flavorful! I absolutely love these. Cooking with wine can be intimidating at first, but trust me, it's nothing!  Open up a bottle of red wine, pour yourself a glass and get ready to eat in 10 minutes.  You will feel like a gourmet chef after this!
