- Combine first 4 ingredients in a plastic bag. Coat mushroom caps evenly in marinade. Let rest for 1/2 hour.
- Place mushroom caps on the grill cap-side-up and season with salt and pepper. Cook mushrooms covered or under tin foil tent and turn occasionally. Mushrooms will cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
- Combine tomatoes, rosemary or basil and smoked mozzarella. Drizzle with oil and toss.
- Fill mushroom caps with tomato mixture and top with sliced mozzarella.
- Close grill lid or place tin foil tent over mushroom caps to melt cheese, it will take 1 to 3 minutes. Serve as-is or, place stuffed caps on sliced crusty bread to catch the juices.
