Taking On The V-Con Pt. 5

Have you ever seen Ghostbusters? You know the Marshmallow puff monster? Well, that's me right now. I ate an enormous bowl of pasta and mushrooms. It looked so good, I just kept scooping more and more onto my plate. I can eat these, I think to myself, easily. Just open up the mouth, chew a bit and down the hatch. Simple. Oh and it was, because the recipe for tonight: Roasted Portobellos, happens to be something I make a lot. Not this recipe exactly, but very similar. I love mushrooms, in the same way that I love bunnies and bikes and kittens and unicorns.

Mushrooms are magic, and some of them are even called magic mushrooms, but don't eat those, unless you WANT to see unicorns, which would be rad, but now my bloated brain and tummy are wandering. Back to topic, I love mushrooms and this recipe for tonight was exactly what I needed. I haven't told any of you, but I had a little sleep over in the ER last week for some troubles of the lady variety and my parts have been achey, not THOSE parts, just my whole body. Sore and tired and a little on the weak side so a magical dinner (there's that word again, I must be thinking about wizards) was just what I needed.

This recipe is simple and out of this world tasty.

1/2 cup cooking wine
1 T. olive oil
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic
Portobello Mushrooms
and whatever the frick else you want to send your tummy to the moon. I added a sweet yellow onion, oregano, salt and pepper to my marinade and served my mushies with a red bell pepper, fresh basil, one spicy jalapeno pepper, tomato and whole wheat pasta. Yeah, right...Yum!

marinate mushrooms for twenty minutes then bake at 400 degrees covered in tin foil for thirty minutes the uncover and bake another ten minutes.


everything but the mushies

My dinner was spicy and packed full of flavor goodness. I am not sure if Timmy even chewed his! For reals! I suggest you give this one a whirl, you will not be disappointed.


  1. It looks so good with the pasta. I heart mushrooms too. Feel better soon!

  2. Im sorry to hear you had to go to the ER..I hope you're feeling better.
    The pasta looks really good..I might have to cook it sometime soon!

  3. Yummy! The only thing better than that pasta dish would be actually seeing unicorns. Unicorns are the best! But mushrooms are a close second. Love the blog! I'm adding it to my blog roll. Thanks for stopping by my blog to lemme know.

  4. I dislike mushrooms. (And eggplant- I know, worst vegan ever!) Which is too bad, because it sounded good otherwise.

    Hope you are feeling better!

  5. I'm with you on the eggplant Kenike. But I loves me some portobellos. These are fantastic on the portobello salad with spicy mustard vinaigrette in the same book. Nom!
