Meat Lite: Portobello and Herbed Ricotta Sandwiches

[Photograph: Joy Manning]

This easy sandwich gets so much meaty flavor and texture from a layer of seared portabellos, it hardly needs the prosciutto. Feel free to omit it. This makes the sandwich a terrific option for meals when vegetarians and non-veggies dine together, because the pork product is entirely optional. The flavorful herbed ricotta mixture is what makes it fancy enough for company. Serve it with roasted vegetables or a bowl of vegetable soup to make it a complete meal.
