Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.

Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a medium pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut tomato into 1/4-inch pieces. Slice mozzarella into 1/4-inch slices. Remove stems from mushroom caps. Finely chop stems. Roughly chop spinach.

Start portobellos

Arrange mushroom caps, top-side up on a baking sheet. Spoon 1/2 tbsp oil over each cap, then season with salt and pepper. Bake in the bottom of the oven, until mushrooms are fork-tender, 12-14 min.

Cook Orzo

While mushrooms cook, add orzo to the boiling water. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6-8 min. When orzo is done, reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and set aside in a large bowl.

Finish orzo

Heat the same pot over medium. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and swirl to melt. Add garlic puree, onions and mushroom stems. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Remove pot from heat, then add cooked orzo, spinach, tomatoes, half the pesto and reserved pasta water. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

Assemble Bake

Transfer orzo mixture to a lightly oiled 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch for 4 ppl). Top with the roasted mushroom caps and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle Parmesan over top. Bake in the middle of the oven, until mozzarella has melted, 4-5 min.

Finish and Serve

Divide mushroom and orzo bake between plates. Spoon remaining pesto over top.
