Wipe mushrooms clean with paper towel. Cut stems off at the base and reserve for another use. Cut mushroom caps in quarters. With a paring knife, remove gills from caps and discard.

In the same skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil over high heat. Add mushrooms, scallions and parsley. Cook, stirring constantly, until mushrooms are browned in spots, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and toss until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add to mushroom mixture. Toss to combine. Stir in reserved pine nuts. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, lightly toast bread. Place toasts on a baking sheet. Divide spinach-mushroom mixture over toasts and sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Notes: Crisply toasted country bread makes a pleasing contrast to tender sauteed greens and melted cheese. Recipe mentions spinach, but any leafy green vegetables, like spinach, kale, Swiss chard, broccoli rabe, may be used. Greens are quick-cooking; interchangeable; highly nutritious.
