Serves: 4 stuffed portobellos
 
Ingredients
  • 4 large Portobello mushrooms
  • 12 oz turkey Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 oz coarsely chopped spinach leaves
  • 1 cup part-skim mozzarella, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Gently wash the portobellos and use a spoon to scrape out the inner gills of the cap (discard). Place mushrooms stem side up on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook for 4-5 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking up into crumbles using a wooden spoon. Remove cooked sausage to a plate and return skillet to heat.
  3. Add the olive oil to the skillet and once hot, add the onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add garlic, stir, and cook for 30-60 seconds or until fragrant.
  4. Add tomato sauce, crushed red pepper, and spinach. Allow spinach to heat through and wilt until bright green. Stir in ½ cup cheese.
  5. Fill each mushroom with ¼ the sausage mixture and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining ½ cup mozzarella; return to oven to bake for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and allow to cool for several minutes before serving.
