  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Roasted red peppers, chopped and blotted dry with paper towels
  • 4 Boneless beef strip steaks, about 6 oz. each
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Classico® Basil Pesto Pasta Sauce
  • 4 Large portabella mushroom caps
  • 1/3 cup Classico® Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce


  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat; grease grates well. In a small bowl, mix together mozzarella cheese and roasted peppers, and set aside. Season steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper, if desired. Coat lightly with 1/4 cup of Pesto Sauce. Coast mushrooms lightly with remaining 1/4 cup of Pesto Sauce.
  2. Grill steaks for 4 to 7 minutes per side, or until cooked to desired doneness. Transfer to platter and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, grill mushrooms, rounded side up, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn and grill additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill and spoon pasta sauce and cheese mixture into mushroom caps. Grill for another 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Transfer to platter. Serve immediately with grilled steaks.
