Ingredients
  • Stuffed Mushrooms :
  • 8 oz white button mushrooms

  • 3 tbsp ricotta cheese, low fat
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped very fine ( ~5 Tbsp after chopping fine)
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil powder
  • Pinch of thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced (add less garlic if you don't like too much garlic)
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • Additional breadcrumbs & parmesan cheese for adding on top
  • Pasta :
  • 1 jar of Ragu Roasted Garlic Pasta sauce
  • 4 oz pasta ( I used spaghetti but you can use any shape you like )
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp basil powder
  • 4 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • Pinch thyme
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
Instructions
  1. Stuffed Mushrooms :
  2. Clean mushrooms under running water and gently pull the stems. Chop the stems very finely and transfer them to a bowl. To it add, parmesan cheese, ricotta, spinach, chili flakes, oregano, basil, thyme, breadcrumbs and salt to taste. Mix and taste.
  3. Now fill the centre of mushrooms with this filling.
  4. Meanwhile boil pasta as per package directions. In another pot, add ½ cup sauce and to it add salt, chili flakes, basil, ricotta, thyme, oregano and ketchup. Mix and taste the sauce. Add the strained boiled pasta into the sauce and stir it around around evenly mixed.
  5. Pre heat oven to 350F.
  6. Take a baking dish and add some sauce from the jar at the base. Transfer pasta into the dish and then place the stuffed mushrooms. Now sprinkle the mushrooms with breadcrumbs & parmesan cheese and bake it for 15 - 17 minutes until mushrooms are cooked through. The pasta sauce will flavor the mushrooms and the water from mushrooms will go inside the pasta making it taste delicious!
  7. Serve with crusty garlic bread!
