    12 Medium Portobella Mushroom Caps
    1.5 T. Olive Oil
    1 Medium Onion, diced
    2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
    2 c. Sliced Zucchini, steamed, cooled and squeezed mostly dry
    2 c. Fresh Baby Spinach leaves, chopped
    2 T. Chopped, fresh basil
    1 T. Chopped fresh oregano
    15 oz. Container Part-Skim Ricotta Cheese
    2 c. 2% Fat Cottage Cheese
    8 oz Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, shredded.
    6 oz provalone cheese, shredded


Spray two large baking pans with cooking oil spray. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions about 8-10 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add garlic and saute about 2-3 more minutes. Add spinach and saute until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add zucchini and chopped herbs. Set aside.

In a large bowl stir together the ricotta and cottage cheeses. In a small bowl mix together the Mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Mix half of the Mozzarella/provolone cheese into the ricotta/cottage cheese mixture. Save the other half of the Mozzarella mixture for sprinkling over the mushrooms.

Place mushroom caps gill sides up in a single layer in the oiled baking dish. My baking pans fit about six caps per pan. Spread about 1/4 c. of the cottage cheese mixture on top of each mushroom. Spoon a little under 1/4 c. of the marinara sauce over the cheese mixture. Sprinkle each mushroom with a little of the reserved Mozzarella/provolone cheese. Carefully pour a little warm water into each pan to keep the mushrooms moist and prevent them from sticking to the pan as they cook. About 1/8" of water is all that is needed.

Place baking dishes in preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cheese is just melted. Serve warm.
