Stuffed Peppers



From Megan's Kitchen:

Vegetables never really are the most exciting part of the meal. We cook and eat them because we're supposed to, but asked what's for dinner, no one ever responds "Greenbeans! Yay! Oh and bbq chicken". Unfortunately it sometimes even becomes an after thought or an untouched bowl on the dinner table. So what's a good way to get people to eat their veggies? Stuff them full of cheese, rice and sausage. Voila, problem solved.

Stuffed Green Peppers
Ingredients: (I just cook for two so adjust the recipe to fit your serving size!)
1/4 cup uncooked brown rice
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. water
2 green peppers
1/2 onion chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 lb sausage or ground turkey (cooked)
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 cup tomato sauce
2 oz. mozzarella
Salt and Pepper

Combine rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Cut tops off of green peppers and clean out the insides.


 Heat skillet over medium heat and saute onions till soft.


 Stir in ground turkey and parsley. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes.


 Mix in rice and 3/4 cup tomato sauce.


 Spoon mixture into peppers and top with remaining tomato sauce.


 Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover. Top each with cheese and bake until cheese is melted. Serve.
