Lasagna -- along with plenty of other Italian dishes -- is always a great vegetarian dinner option, but it can be labor-intensive. Topping portobello mushrooms with a mixture of spinach and ricotta and Parmesan cheeses is a whole lot easier than making lasagna, and the mushrooms provide extra protein and fiber. Portobellos also have a hearty texture, making them a favorite among vegetarians who eat them as a substitute for meat. You can add whatever additional ingredients you like to this basic stuffed mushroom recipe.
