A meaty portobello mushroom stuffed with marinara, spicy sausage, and creamy ricotta mixture and topped with fresh basil. A gluten free alternative to traditional lasagna.
It is no secret that I love Portobello Mushrooms. I sort of happened upon them this past year, and made a Steak Stuffed Portobello that my whole family loved, and then I just kept making them, over and over again with different variations and fillings. This particular version ranks amongst my favorite because it is all the tasty goodness of traditional comfort food lasagna without the white flour, gluten, noodles.
And unlike a traditional lasagna, it comes together in under 30 minutes. Which is seriously awesome because slaving over a lasagna, while often worth it, is not something I have time to do very often. And I am sure you don’t either. So trust me, you will love the simplicity of this option.

Because I am all for eazy peazy I use a bottled marinara. If I have any left that I canned the year before I will use homemade. But if I don’t, I have no problem with Prego. I love the flavor, and it is so easy to just buy a jar and have on hand for a quick dinner.
