4 Star Mushroom & Ricotta Brushetta

I have to admit that I have not tried this recipe but don't see how you could go wrong, it looks delicious!!

Makes 4 servings
 1 cup ricotta cheese
 1 egg
 1 lemon, zested
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
 1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste
 4 slices French bread, toasted
 1 tablespoon olive oil
 1 tablespoon butter
 1 tablespoon olive oil
 16 large white mushrooms, sliced
 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
 1/4 cup Marsala wine
 1/2 cup chicken broth
 2 teaspoons lemon juice
 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
 1 tablespoon butter
 salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Mix ricotta, egg, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a bowl until smooth.
Place toasted bread slices on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and evenly divide ricotta mixture atop 4 bread slices.
Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is browned, about 12 minutes.
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.
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.

Spoon mushroom mixture equally atop 4 slices of ricotta-topped bread slices.
