4 servings

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 6 -inch portobello mushroom caps
  • 4 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 shallots (1 finely chopped, 1 thinly sliced)
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 3 tablespoons grated pecorino romano cheese, plus shaved pecorino for topping
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 4 stalks celery, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 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.

  • Meanwhile, toss the celery, sliced shallot and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Top with shaved pecorino. Divide the mushrooms among plates and serve with the celery salad. Drizzle with olive oil.
