Mushroom Parmesan

Cook Time: 25 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4-6 servings


* 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for greasing
the grill pan
* 4 to 6 portobello mushrooms
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 cup marinara sauce (store bought or homemade)
* 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
* 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces


Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.

Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over both sides of the mushrooms.
Sprinkle the mushrooms with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil on the
grill to prevent the mushrooms from sticking. Grill until the
mushrooms are heated through and tender, about 5 minutes per side.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Spread 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce on the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch
baking dish. Place the grilled mushrooms on top of the marinara sauce
and top with the remaining marinara sauce. Sprinkle with the cheeses
and top with the butter pieces. Bake until the cheese melts and the
top is golden, about 15 minutes. Serve.
