Caprese Stuffed Portobello

I’m trying to get back on the meatless Monday bandwagon and eliminate some of the meat we’ve been eating recently. My husband had a battle with gout not too long ago and while we think we know what his triggers are, I’m hoping to help keep it away by slightly changing our diet. This recipe for stuffed portobello mushrooms will be one of my good to meals. It was quick and easy to make, and so delicious! The mushrooms are brushed with garlic butter, stuffed with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes and drizzled with balsamic vinegar topped with fresh basil.

Greek Lasagna Toss with Tomatoes, Shrimp and Feta

I’ve been wanting to try a lasagna toss for awhile now and finally found a non-traditional recipe. It was good, makes a ton. I’ll definitely make it again, but will probably go with some other type of pasta as it’s not easy to eat lasagna noodles! Recipe is from Good Housekeeping.

1 pkg (16 oz) lasagna noodles
2 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
28 oz can whole tomatoes
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano (I used 2 cubes of frozen basil)
1 lb large shrimp
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley, chopped
2 ozs feta cheese, crumbled

Heat a large covered saucepot of water to boiling over high heat. Add pasta and cook until tender, about 2 minutes longer than the label directs.

Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion and cook 5-7 minutes or until tender and lightly browned. Stir in tomatoes with their juice, crushed red pepper and oregano. Heat to boiling over high heat, breaking up tomatoes with side of spoon. Reduce heat to medium and cook 7 minutes to slightly thickent. Stir in shrimp and cook 3-4 minutes or until shrimp turns opaque throughout. Remove skillet from heat; stir in chopped parsley and 1/2 cup crumbled feta.

Drain pasta; return to saucepot. Add shrimp mixture to pasta in saucepot and toss to coat. Spoon mixture into a large serving bowl; sprinkle with additional feta if desired.
