8 portobello mushroom caps (about 1 pound)
Cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat broiler.

Remove brown gills from the undersides of portobello mushrooms using a spoon; discard gills. Place mushroom caps, undersides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Broil for 5 minutes.

Turn mushroom caps over; sprinkle evenly with black pepper and salt. Top each cap with 2 tablespoons Basic Marinara and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
