A wonderful beginning to a special dinner........... Preheat oven to 400~F. Peel outer papery skin from garlic head. Cut off top 1/3 inch to expose garlic cloves.

Using fork, finely mash enough garlic in bowl to measure 1-1/2 tablespoons. Mix in reserved oil. Stir in garlic mixture into chopped mushroom mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Line large baking sheet with foil. Spray with oil spray. Brush mushroom caps with 1-1/2 tablespoons oil. Place rounded side down on prepared sheet. Lightly salt mushrooms. Spoon filling into mushrooms, mounding in center. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; chill.) Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Bake mushrooms uncovered until tender, about 20 minutes. Arrange on platter.
