So a couple of months ago, a group of friends and I started a monthly dinner club called Ladies Who Dine (yes we are poking fun at ourselves!). For this month's LWD edition I made stuffed mushrooms for the first time, and the ladies thought they were a hit!
*preheat oven to 400 degrees*
-a handful of broccoli rabe (leaves and broccoli pieces)
-a handful of fresh basil
-2 Tbsp. parsley
-1/3-1/2 c. of pecorino cheese
-herb goat cheese (I added a little to each mushroom)
-3 garlic cloves
-1/4 c. bread crumbs
-salt & pepper
-handful of nuts (I used almond)
Mince 2 cloves of garlic and trim and chop broccoli rabe. Saute in a pan with olive oil, salt and pepper for 2-3 minutes. Add to food processor with basil, parsley, half of the cheese (not goat), last garlic clove, nuts and olive oil. Pulse until the ingredients are combined (not too fine). Remove the stems from mushrooms and place in pan coated with olive oil. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil onto the mushrooms before adding the filling. Then stuff the mushrooms, and combine the remaining cheese with bread crumbs and sprinkle over the mushrooms. Add a little bit of goat cheese on the top. I also sprinkled a pinch of red pepper flakes on the mushrooms and did a final drizzle of olive oil. Place in the oven for 30 minutes and enjoy!
