Natale Stuffed Portobellos

Natale Stuffed Portobellos

Serves 4

The inspiration for this recipe came from Chance Genovese's Italian heritage. "I wanted a dish that used traditional ingredients of Italy but were easily found at the local market," says Genovese, who adopted a meat-free diet at a very young age. "Above all, I knew the dish had to be easy to prepare in the chaos of a holiday celebration."
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 2 Tbs. breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 8 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ½ cup light cream or soy creamer
  • 10 oz. fresh spinach leaves (8 cups)
  • ¼ cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 4 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped

1. To make Mushrooms: Preheat oven to 375ºF. Whisk together oil, vinegar, and garlic in bowl. Brush mushroom caps with oil mixture, and place on baking sheet. Roast 30 minutes, or until tender. Drain on paper-towel-lined plate.

2. To make Filling: Toast breadcrumbs on baking sheet 2 to 3 minutes, or until light brown. Set aside.

3. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes, or until soft. Add sun-dried tomatoes and garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in cream, and cook 2 minutes. Add spinach, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Stir in cheeses, and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon Filling into mushroom caps, and top with toasted breadcrumbs.

This is definitely a keeper! Very easy and very tasty. Quite substantial too. It can easily serve as the main dish. I was using it as a side dish, so had two mushrooms left over. They reheated nicely.

Really tasty. Two suggestions: use a bit less cheese--it is very rich. And I used a rosemary asiago and that gave it a great hint of rosemary.
