Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Baby Spinach and Peppers with Alfredo Sauce

This idea struck me out of the blue. I LOVE big, juicy portobello mushrooms. A lot. First, I marinated them for a few hours, sans stems, in olive oil, oregano, garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Save the stems, cut, and sauté; they’re awesome and shouldn’t be wasted. Next, I grilled the mushroom concave side up, and then flipping them, I dumped the liquid on the ones I already flipped over. I used the indirect-grilling method so as not to have flare-ups from the olive oil. Then, I spooned in a small amount of Alfredo sauce. You can use homemade or store-bought, your choice. Finally, I topped with a mixture of baby spinach and diced bell peppers. You can just load everything, and grill if you want, or bake, or broil, whatever. I just prefer grilling the mushrooms first; but that’s just one of my little quirks. They taste awesome and make such a pretty and colorful presentation. Marinating the mushrooms really makes this dish though 🙂
