Ingredients

3 large portobello mushrooms caps

3/4 cup light roasted garlic balsamic salad dressing, plus 2 tablespoons divided

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup lowfat ricotta

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (recommended: McCormick)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 (16-ounce) bag store-bought crostini

1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch wide strips

Fresh oregano leaves, for garnish

Directions

  1. Lightly wipe the caps clean with a paper towel. Cut into 1/2-inch slices, place in a large zip-top bag and add 3/4 cup of balsamic dressing. Squeeze air from bag and seal. Lightly massage the mushrooms to ensure they are all evenly coated. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the marinated mushrooms and saute for about 6 to 8 minutes until tender.
  3. Meanwhile in a small bowl, stir together ricotta, 2 tablespoons balsamic dressing, and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Spread crostini with the ricotta mixture. Top each crostini with a portobello slice and cross with a red pepper strip. Garnish with oregano leaf.
