For the Stuffed Mushrooms:

  • 1 cup fresh herbs (such as a combination of parsley, chives, and dill), finely chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for drizzling

For the Herb Butter Drizzle:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (use the same combination as in the filling), finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Prepare the Mushrooms:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Remove the stems from the mushrooms and set them aside. Place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a bowl, combine the chopped fresh herbs, ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
    • Stuff each mushroom cap with the herb and cheese mixture, mounding it slightly.
  3. Bake the Stuffed Mushrooms:
    • Drizzle a little olive oil over the stuffed mushrooms for a golden finish.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is lightly browned.
  4. Prepare the Herb Butter Drizzle:
    • While the mushrooms are baking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
    • Stir in the fresh herbs, lemon juice, lemon zest, and red pepper flakes (if using).
    • Cook for 1-2 minutes until the herbs become fragrant. Remove from heat.
  5. Serve:
    • Once the stuffed mushrooms are done, transfer them to a serving platter.
    • Drizzle the herb-infused butter sauce over the top of the stuffed mushrooms.
