- 4 thick slices grainy sourdough, to serve
1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Pour tomatoes into a large baking dish. Season with freshly ground black pepper, add fresh basil and stir to combine. Place mushrooms, stem-side up, into tomato mixture, then spoon one teaspoon pesto into cup centres.
2 Place ricotta and parmesan in a bowl, season with freshly ground black pepper and mix to combine. Top mushrooms with cheese mixture, then bake for 30 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
3 Combine oil with remaining pesto, then drizzle over mushrooms. Sprinkle traybake with rocket and serve at the table with sourdough on the side.
MAKE IT GLUTEN FREE!
Choose a pesto that is labelled gluten free and, instead of serving traybake with sourdough bread, crisp up some gluten-free corn tortillas under the grill for 30 seconds for extra crunch and flavour.
