{Recipe} "Sausage" Stuffed Mushrooms

I've always loved those sausage stuffed mushroom hors d'oeuvres but lately I've been making a vegetarian version that is pretty darn close (without the fatty sausage guilt).
Teen 2 and I eat these for dinner when it's just the two of us.
I made this recipe two different times while photographing this post but the basic recipe is the same.
Ingredients:
Mushrooms (I use two containers of button style)
Gimme Lean Ground Vegetarian Sausage (used half of this package)
Onions - red and/or green- 1/2 chopped
Cream Cheese-4 oz
Crushed Garlic (optional)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Clean the mushrooms and stems with a damp paper towel and dry them.
Chop up the stems.
Place the mushrooms in a shallow baking dish.
Saute the chopped onions and mushroom stems in some olive oil.
Drizzle the mushrooms with some olive oil as well.
Heat up the Gimme Lean, breaking it up with a spoon.
You can add it to the already cooking veggies or cook the 'sausage' up first then add the veggies.
You can also add in some crushed garlic if you like.
I like.
Turn the heat down and add the cream cheese. 
{Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese also works well if you want to make this vegan}
Stir around until it is all mixed well and the cheese has melted.
Stuff those suckers as full as you can.
Add a little grated Parmesan/Romano cheese(or nutritional yeast for the vegan version) if you like and bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
mmmm!
Make some now!
