Stuffed Portobellos

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper, divided in half
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup spinach, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, finely shredded and divided in half
  • 2 Tbsp kalamata olives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 cup prepared marinara sauce

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F and coat with a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place the mushroom caps on the pan, gill-side up. Sprinkle the cap with salt and 1/8 tsp pepper.
  3. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.
  4. Meanwhile, mash the ricotta, spinach, 1/4 cup Parmesan, olives, Italian seasoning, and 1/8 tsp pepper.
  5. Microwave the marinara sauce on high for 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes, or until hot.
  6. Pour out any liquid in the mushroom caps and place the caps back onto the pan. Spread 1 Tbsp marinara sauce on each cap and keep the remaining marinara sauce warm.
  7. Stuff 1/3 cup of the ricotta filling into each cap and evenly distribute the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan into each cap.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes or until hot and serve with the marinara sauce.
