Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Spinach and Cheese

  • Cooking spray
  • 2-3 Portobello mushroom caps
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 leek (thinly sliced)
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 2 tablespoons grated pecorino Romano cheese, plus shaved pecorino for topping
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese

Preheat the broiler. Mist a foil-lined broiler pan with cooking spray. Put the mushrooms gill-side down on the pan; broil 5 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the spinach, breadcrumbs, mozzarella, chopped shallot, tomato, 2 tablespoons each pecorino and olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Remove the mushrooms from the broiler and turn them gill-side up on the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Mound the spinach filling on the mushrooms and top with the ricotta. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon pecorino and broil until the filling is heated through and the ricotta is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
