  3. While the sausage is cooking, remove the stems and scrape the black gills from the inside of the portobello caps. 
  4. Set the caps, gill-side up, on a sheet pan and preheat the oven to 400*F. 
  5. In a small bowl, combine the grated parmesan and chopped basil leaves until mixed. 
  6. Once the sausage is cooked, spoon it into the mushroom caps, dividing evenly. 
  7. Top the mushroom caps with the parmesan cheese and basil mixture. 
  8. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 8-12 minutes, until the mushrooms have softened and the cheese is melted.
