Think of this as a meatless beef wellington. Ready in just 45 minutes, this easy but elegant dish features portobello mushrooms, muenster cheese and breadcrumbs baked inside delicate, flaky pastry. To achieve a glossy golden crust, brush the dough with a beaten egg before baking. Serve with peppery arugula and slices of fresh pear for a light side dish to balance the hearty, savory pies.
