1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese

In a small skillet heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil until hot. Add chopped mushroom stems; cook, stirring frequently, until golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers, garlic, salt and black pepper; cook and stir, until garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add wine; cook, stirring constantly, until evaporated, about 1 minute.
