1 and 1/2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
* snipped fresh parsley
Directions for the mushrooms: Coat a medium nonstick skillet with butter-flavored nonstick spray, and heat over medium high heat. Then saute mushrooms until they have wilted, which will take about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
Directions for Omelet:  Whisk egg substite, water, rosemary and pepper.
Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Swirl the skillet to coat bottom with margarine. Add egg mixture to skillet and cook, lifting edges of eggs to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath. When eggs are almost set, sprinkle with mushrooms and parmesan. Cook until eggs are completely set. Fold omelet in half and garnish with parsley. Serves 2.
