Bolognese Sauce: You can either buy a prepared one (make sure it is sugar free and preferably made with olive oil) or you can make your own sauce from scratch.
If you choose to make your own, start with your onion and garlic.
Place them into a cooking pot sprinkled with olive oil and caramelize for few minutes.

Mushrooms: Fully wash or clean your mushrooms.
Take out all of the stems. You can add chopped mushroom stems into your mixture as this will still bake together in the oven.
At the same time preheat your oven to 200C or 400F.
Place your mushrooms cups either onto the casserole or a baking sheet.
Stuff each mushroom with your bolognese sauce mixture and top up each of the mushrooms with grated cheese.
Bake at 200C or 400F for approximately 20 minutes.
Avoid sogginess - Towel dry mushrooms after washing otherwise they might become soggy Stems - do not throw stems from mushrooms. Cut them up and add them into the filling. Reheat - do not microwave if you need reheating. It will get the mushrooms soggy. Better place them into the oven for a few minutes. Size - Try to pick the same size mushrooms to have them cooked all at the same time.
