Cheese & Spinach-Stuffed Portobellos

Posted on

Eating Well had me drooling on the keyboard on this one. I love mushrooms and I love ricotta. This is also meatless. Winner!!!!!!!!! Then the calories….omg! 210 for a serving. Seriously. Yeah, I know! I was stunned!

4 large Portobello mushroom caps
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 cup ricotta cheese, part skim milk
1 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons kalamata olive, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3/4 cup marinara sauce

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Place mushroom caps, gill-side up, on the prepared pan. Sprinkle with salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Roast until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, mash ricotta, spinach, 1/4 cup Parmesan, olives, Italian seasoning and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Place marinara sauce in a small bowl, cover and microwave on High until hot, 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes.

4. When the mushrooms are tender, carefully pour out any liquid accumulated in the caps. Return the caps to the pan gill-side up. Spread 1 tablespoon marinara into each cap; cover the remaining sauce to keep warm. Mound a generous 1/3 cup ricotta filling into each cap and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until hot, about 10 minutes. Serve with the remaining marinara sauce.

4 Servings.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
