It's not very often I get to enjoy a swanky party with "adult" food anymore. I know, that probably sounds funny but believe it or not I actually spend most of my time in yoga pants with my hair in a bun and I'm lucky if I get to enjoy any food while it's still warm, never mind anything fancy or gourmet!

I guess it's a good thing I'm a food blogger then, because now I have an excuse to make (and eat!) all kind of delicious food. Like these amazing Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Mushrooms. Which I totally ate while wearing my yoga pants, with my hair in a bun, after the kids were in bed for the night. And in the interest of full disclosure, I don't feel one bit guilty about it because if there's anything a mom of 2 preschoolers needs at the end of the day it's a relaxing evening with a delicious snack, a good book, and the drink of her choice (sparkling water for me!), am I right?

Stuffed mushrooms have always seemed so classy to me, but I've always known they were simple to make. And it doesn't get much easier than this recipe! A simple ricotta cheese mixture stuffed into white mushrooms, topped with some fresh Parmesan, and then baked to perfection! The ricotta keeps these stuffed mushrooms tasting light and fresh and the spinach adds a beautiful colour and an earthy flavour. If you love appetizers as much as I do, this is definitely a recipe you need in your collection!

Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Mushrooms (makes 8 large)

You'll need:

8 large white mushrooms
a drizzle of olive oil
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh spinach
a pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp dried parsley
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Fresh parsley for garnish



To make:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare a baking dish with a drizzle of olive oil and rip the stems out of the mushrooms, adding the mushrooms to the baking dish upside down.

Add the ricotta cheese, chopped spinach, salt and pepper, and dried parsley to a bowl and stir everything together until combined.

Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps, dividing the mixture evenly among the caps.

Top each one with a bit of the Parmesan cheese and bake at 375 for about 25-30 minute, or until the tops are golden brown!

Serve with some chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional).
