This is a different way to stuff cornish hens.
Cornish Hens Stuffed with Raw Spinach
- 2 cornish hens
- 4 cups fresh spinach leaves
- 6-8 cremini mushrooms sliced in half and then sliced very thin
- 3 cloves garlic minced
Clean cornish hens and pat dry. Saute mushrooms in butter until browned then add garlic and saute until fragrant. Let cool then mix with spinach leaves. Rub some pesto inside each hen cavity then stuff with spinach mixture. Tie legs together and place in a roasting pan. Rub pesto into and under skin and surround hens with chunks of carrot. Roast at 375 degrees for 15 minutes then turn heat down to 350 and cook until done, about 1 hour. Split and serve halves.
