Grilled portobellos, with smoked mozzarella cheese and balsamic vinegar, set on a mound of steamed spinach. I'm hungry! Great summer fare from Delicious Living magazine.

Oh this was wonderful. I used a lot less olive oil than was called for and they still worked out fine. Cooked the tomatoes on skewers on the grill right alongside the mushrooms. I topped them with cheese and closed the grill for a few minutes and that was enough to melt it. So no messy pans for me :) Fabulous, quick, easy and it presented beautifully. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is outstanding. I loved the earthy flavor of the mushroom, and the tart, sweet balsamic. The colors of the tomatoes and spinach were eye appealing and added their own flavors. Excellent. I will definately make this recipe again. Thanks, Sharon for another lovely recipe.
