Prep mushrooms by removing the stems, and scraping out dark brown gills with a small spoon. Set aside. If preparing in advance, store in a plastic bag or airtight container.
Heat a pan on medium heat, add Italian sausage to brown. Once halfway browned add sliced green onions and minced garlic. Cook until done. Add spinach, and allow to wilt.
Add cooked stuffing, and cheeses. Combine well, and cook until cheese is completely melted. Set aside to cool for a few minutes. If prepping ahead, this can be stored in an airtight container.
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Stuff the mushrooms, and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-23 minutes. If you have prepped ahead allow for a few minutes of cooking time if your filling is not room temperature.
Once done serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to one week.
