Special Equipment

  • 1 sheet pan
  • 1 mixing bowl


  • 1-16 ounce Mushrooms, Baby bella or button package (about 10-12 each)
  • 1 16- ounce Ricotta cheese package
  • ½-¾ Cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 Tbsp. Italian herbs or oregano dried or fresh
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • To Taste Salt & Pepper
  • ½-1 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice (if desired)
  • As needed Fresh basil leaves to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Prep the mushrooms: Gently remove the stem of all the mushrooms
  • Using a small spoon, scrape out the mushroom “frills” inside the mushroom to “clean them” and allow more space for the filling.
  • Rinse the mushrooms
  • In a baking pan, Drizzle the  mushrooms with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat then set aside. 
  • Make the filling: In a mixing bowl add the ricotta, lemon juice, herbs, salt and pepper and 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Stuff the mushrooms: Using a spoon, scoop about 1-2 Tablespoons of the ricotta into each mushroom until they’re all filled and the ricotta is used up.
  • Top the mushrooms with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the mushrooms are cooked.
  • Brown the tops: This can be done using the high broiler setting on the oven the last 5 minutes or so. (Be very careful to watch them so they don’t burn!) OR a flame torch can be used to brown the tops on medium flame.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs and enjoy hot right away or cool down and package them for meal prep.
