Spinach & Mushroom Stromboli with Garlicky Tomato Dipping Sauce

by Monica Bennion on September 04, 2017

Barbera is an Italian variety hailing from the Piedmont region of Italy, and this particular grape variety thrives in the Amador County climate and soil. Barbera is a well-rounded, medium-bodied wine that is love at first sip!  The balanced pH and acidity, along with bright, fresh and bold flavors, make this wine the perfect "food wine".  This recipe is one of our favorites from Blue Apron. A Spinach & Mushroom Stromboli with Fresh Mozzarella and Garlicky Tomato Sauce.  The flavors and spices in this crispy and savory meal are brought to life when paired with either of our Amador County Barberas.

INGREDIENTS
3/4 lb. plain pizza dough (brought to room temperature)
1 14oz. can whole peeled tomatoes (drained well and gently broken apart)
1/2 lb. fresh mozzarella cheese (medium diced)
6 oz. cremini mushrooms (rinsed and thinly sliced)
4 cloves garlic (peeled, minced and smashed into a paste)
1/2 lb. spinach (rinshed, dried and finely chopped)
1 bunch parsley (leaves only, discard stems)
1/2 cup part-skim Ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
