  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Mix ricotta, egg, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Place toasted bread slices on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and evenly divide ricotta mixture atop 4 bread slices.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is browned, about 12 minutes.
  5. Heat butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir mushrooms in mixture until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Add green onions; cook and stir until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir marsala wine into mixture and cook until reduced by half, about 1 minute.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add chicken stock and lemon juice to skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Reduce heat to low. Stir in parsley and butter. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  7. Spoon mushroom mixture equally atop 4 slices of ricotta-topped bread slices.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use just about any herb in the mushroom mixture: tarragon, basil, or chervil would work well.

This was really nice. Light and bright...the hot flakes gave it zig and the lemon was a surprise on the tongue. I added some parmesean cheese (to taste) because I thought it seemed a bit bland...

I prepared the mushrooms and served them as a side for my Sirloin Roast. I made three pounds and could have used 6. Everybody loved them.
