Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

These are a delicious healthy lunch or a great side at dinner.  It tastes delicious and is so easy to make.  Enjoy!

2 portobello mushrooms
1/4 of an on onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 box frozen spinach
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
3/4 cup bread crumbs
3 basil leaves
2 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the spinach in a microwave safe bowl and cook in the microwave for 6-8 minutes.  When it is done drain well and squeeze out of the liquid in the spinach.

Take the stems out of the portobello mushrooms and place the mushrooms face up in a baking dish.  Chop up the stems and reserve.  In a large skillet saute the onions and garlic for about 6 minutes.  Then add the mushrooms stems and the spinach and cook for another 5 minutes.  Finish with 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.
Once the mixture is caramelized and browned, take out of the pan and allow to cool in a bowl.  Once cool, add the chopped basil, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.  Stir the mixture. 
Take half the mixture and stuff it inside the mushroom cap, packing it down.  Do the same with the other mushroom. 
Then top the mushrooms with either mozzarella cheese, or additional parmesan cheese.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is golden and the mushroom is full cooked. Serve and enjoy!
