To prepare baked oyster mushrooms start by cleaning the mushrooms: remove the stem and use a moist cloth to clean any residual soil from the caps. Wash the parsley, peel the garlic and the onion and combine them with the chilli pepper to create an aromatic mixture.
Grease a high-edged baking tray with butter and place the mushrooms inside it, then add salt and season with the aromatic mix you made with the parsley, garlic, onion and chilli pepper. Next, add a generous sprinkle of grated pecorino cheese and finish with shavings of butter.
Proceed with the baking stage. Pre-heat the oven to 180° and cook the oyster mushrooms for around 15 minutes. When a thin crust has formed on their surface, remove them from the oven and serve.
