You should! I’m a total carnivore, but our family likes to experiment with meatless Monday recipes and find creative ways to add more vegetables to our meals. Portabella Mushrooms, whether stuffed or diced, offer the same texture as meat making them ideal for vegetarian dishes.

The best vegetarian dishes combine a rainbow of textures, colors and flavors. This Stuffed Portabella Mushroom recipe does just that. Yellow, green, red and purple make up the bulk of the stuffing with a hearty marinara and fresh mozzarella cheese to top.

Put this lovely portabella mushroom on top of creamy polenta and BOOM- the best vegetarian recipe ever! Polenta is just a fancy name for Italian grits. If polenta isn’t up your alley, this easy recipe also tastes great over pasta, rice or stand-alone.

I found the perfect marinara to complement this vegetarian dinner recipe. New Bertolli® Rustic Cut™ Marinara combines thick chunks of tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery and garlic you can see.

Other flavors of Rustic Cut™ sauces include a Spicy Marinara, Roasted Garlic and Sweet Peppers and Portobello Mushroom Sauce. All of which would be perfect for topping your Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms. Grab them at your local Giant grocery store.

What is the perfect way to prep those beautiful fungi? Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Rich Taste, of course. Not all olive oils are created equal and the range of flavor can vary greatly. I like a rich tasting oil for my vegetarian recipes so the flavor really shines through.
