Wash and dry mushroom caps and brush with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Arrange hollow side up in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Wash and dry mushroom stems and coarsely chop. Saute the shallots and chopped stems in remaining 6 tablespoons butter for 4-5 minutes until the pieces separate. Lower the heat and add the flour. Stir for a minute or two until thickened. Stir in cream and cook until thickened. Cool slightly, then stir in the parsley; add salt and pepper, to taste.
Fill the mushroom caps and top each with 1 teaspoon of cheese and drizzle with any remaining butter.
