Toast pine nuts in small skillet over medium heat until just golden, about 5 to 7 minutes. Watch very closely as pine nuts burn quickly. Set aside.
While pine nuts are toasting, clean mushrooms with a damp cloth. Remove stems, mince stems and set aside. Don’t forget about the pine nuts!

Add mushroom stems and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add tomato. Stir and cook 2 minutes.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes until mushrooms are cooked.
