Cheesy Portobello Mushroom Cups
over Spaghetti with Crispy Breadcrumbs
Mad for mushrooms? Fan of fungi? Totally taken with toadstools? If you nodded emphatically while reading along, we’ve got the perfect dish for you. Italian-seasoned portobellos are roasted until tender, flipped, and filled with marinara sauce and a mound of melty cheeses. They’re then broiled to bubbly, melty perfection and perched atop spaghetti. A sprinkle of toasty, buttery panko ties everything together, adding carby crunch to this ’shroom-centric soirée.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Adjust rack to top position (top and middle positions for 4 servings) and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Line a baking sheet with foil (line 2 sheets for 4). Wash and dry produce. • Trim any large stems from portobello mushrooms if necessary.
• Drizzle both sides of each mushroom with olive oil; rub to evenly coat. Season all over with 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (2 tsp for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. (You’ll use the remaining Italian Seasoning later.) Arrange mushrooms gill sides down on prepared baking sheet. (Divide between both prepared sheets for 4; roast on top and middle racks.) • Roast on top rack until tender, 14-16 minutes.
• Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot. Cook until al dente, 9-11 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.
• Meanwhile, melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add panko and half the garlic powder. Cook, stirring, until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat; transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out pan. • Return same pan to medium heat. Pour in marinara, remaining Italian Seasoning, remaining garlic powder, stock concentrate, and 1 tsp sugar (2 tsp for 4). Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 2-3 minutes. • Turn off heat. Reserve ¼ cup marinara (½ cup for 4).
• Once mushrooms are tender, remove sheet from oven; flip mushrooms over on sheet. Heat broiler to high. • Stir drained spaghetti and 1 TBSP butter into sauce. • Spoon reserved marinara into mushrooms, then mound evenly with Italian cheese. • Broil until cheese is melted and lightly browned, 2-4 minutes. TIP: Watch carefully to avoid burning.
• If needed, stir reserved pasta cooking water a splash at a time into pan with spaghetti over low heat until pasta is thoroughly coated in sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide spaghetti between plates and top with cheesy mushrooms. Sprinkle with crispy breadcrumbs and serve.
