Description

This stuffed mushroom is a little lighter than many of the other versions you will come across, as the primary ingredient in the stuffing is creamy ricotta cheese.

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Large Mushrooms
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Finely Minced Onion
  • 2 whole Garlic Cloves, Peeled & Minced
  • 3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1 whole Red Hot Pepper, Minced (Optional)
  • 3 whole Oil Packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes Finely Chopped
  • 1 cup Full Fat Ricotta Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 5 Tablespoons Grated Pecorino Cheese
  • Olive Oil For Brushing

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove the stems of the mushrooms and chop them finely. In a heavy frying pan, heat the olive oil and then add the mushrooms and onion. Cook until softened. Add the garlic and chile pepper and cook another minute or two. Allow the mixture to cool and then add the parsley, tomatoes, and ricotta cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Lightly oil a baking sheet and place mushroom caps cut side up. Brush the caps lightly with olive oil and then spoon the filling in. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and then bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender when pierced with a knife and the tops are lightly browned. Serve immediately.

Note: Porcini or portobello mushrooms work really well in this recipe as their meaty flavor is complimented by the light, creamy filling, but large cultivated button mushrooms can also be used.

Made these tonight. They were fabulous! My mother swears she hates mushrooms, but this recipe changed her mind. She now insists that I add them to our holiday menu. Thanks for the great recipe!
