Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis, show: Everyday Italian, Episode: Vegetarian Italian, this has gotten rave reviews on FoodNetwork. Easy and so delicious, great for a quick dinner and your vegetarian guest will love it! This would also be great for busy college students.I have added a few more spices to the mix. Great served with whole wheat pasta or/and garlic bread, or try it over creamy polenta! Add more cheese and sauce if you like.

Directions

  1. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.
  2. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over both sides of the mushrooms, coating well. Sprinkle the mushrooms with Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes if using, and salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle olive oil on the grill to prevent the mushrooms from sticking. Grill until the mushrooms are heated through and tender, about 5-8 minutes per side.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  5. Chop the garlic cloves into very small pieces(mince), if using, and add to marinara sauce.
  6. 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. Enjoy.

WOW! What a taste treat. And fairly simple to put together. Since it is winter, I used the Foreman grill, but looking forward to doing this over flame on the BBQ for added smokiness. We are trying to have at least one meatless dinner a week, and since I am not a big vegie fan, it is sometimes a challenge, but this will go into the rotation for sure. Thanks for posting!
