Despite the limited number of ingredients, these easy-to-make stuffed mushrooms are boldly flavored. Filled with a simple combination of garlic-sautéed spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, then topped with Asiago cheese, they're also lighter than most stuffed mushroom recipes and make a nice starter that won't spoil anyone's appetite for dinner.Print

- Category: Appetizers
- 8 ounces cremini (baby portobello) mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, very finely chopped
- 5 ounces baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
- 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, finely grated
- Preheat the oven to 375°F and coat a shallow baking sheet with nonstick spray. Arrange the mushroom caps on the prepared sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute, then add the spinach. Sauté until wilted, tossing constantly with tongs, 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, season lightly with salt and pepper, then add the sun-dried tomatos and combine well. Allow to cool for a few minutes before proceeding.
- Using a small spoon (or your fingers), fill the mushroom caps with the spinach mixture, then top with each with cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
