With summer officially over, and school in full swing, I feel like I am running in twenty directions all at once. This makes meal planning a lot harder than it used to be. I have to allow time in between running here and there to fix delicious, healthy dinners. And some nights it’s just a couple of us. So then I have to plan smaller meals. One of my favorite quick weeknight dinners is stuffed Portabella’s. I love them because they can be changed to fit the mood.
Plus, if you take a short cut or two, it all comes together quickly and tastes great.
When I headed to Walmart recently, I headed straight for the Tomato sauce aisle, because I wanted to pick up some Hunt’s diced tomatoes to layer in the bottom of the mushrooms. That was when these Seasoned Tomato and Pepper Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms came to life.Hunt’s has wide variety of great products that makes this easy for us. I picked up several cans of Hunts Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano. I usually use herbs and garlic in my meals but this saved me some serious chopping of herbs and mincing of garlic. A huge time saver.
This recipe comes together so quickly. I usually saute the Portabellas for a moment or two on the stove in a little butter or olive oil and garlic, but it is not necessary. Fill the center of the Portabella with Hunt’s diced tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano. Chop up fresh bell pepper and onion, along with some fresh herbs, in this case I chose Cilantro, but anything would work. If you sauteed the mushroom, toss the veggies in the same pan to saute them as well just for about two minutes or so. Fill the cups the rest of the way with the sauteed veggies. Top the entire thing with a slice of cheese. We chose smoked provolone but again, just about any cheese would do. Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5-10 minutes or until cheese is totally melted.
My fiance loves these and I was pretty thrilled when just a few days later he was requesting them again. They make a great Fall date night dinner and like I said, come together in only about 15 minutes. I cannot beat a dinner that does that. And the Hunt’s diced tomatoes help save time with easy, stress free recipe creation! ConAgra products and other ingredients like fresh produce, helps make our dinner’s both simple and delicious!
I’ve shared with you how I save time in the kitchen using simple products. I’d love to hear about your favorite, simple and delicious weeknight meal.
