The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.

Stuffed Peppers

Alrighty, well I’m really trying to get ahead of the curve here. The holidays pretty much wiped me out. What with Christmas cookies to be baked for the many holiday parties, to packing up our entire family (and presents!) to spend the end of December in Portland, Oregon, to hand-knitting a reversible hat for my husband’s gift, it’s been a ridiculous month. I’ve had a great time, but I’m SO glad it’s over.

The holiday clean-up is still in progress, but I did manage to actually cook dinner tonight. And it was even my own recipe:

Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients –

Four green bell peppers
Box of rice (garlic flavored if possible)
3 mild Italian sausages
1/2 white onion, diced
1 small zucchini chopped
1/2 can of tomatoes
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese (plus 1/4 cup for tops)

Preparation –

Cook box of rice. Cut sausages from casings and brown until cooked and crumbly. Mix all ingredients under green peppers (except extra 1/4 cup of cheese). Slice the tops off the green peppers and scoop the seeds out. Fill the green peppers with mixture and add extra cheese to the top. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and peppers are cooked.

  1. Yum. Stuffed peppers are one of my favorites! My mom makes great ones too — similar to her meatloaf.
    That apron is fab. Amy Butler fabric?

  2. I agree on both of Kellis statements..LOVE the apron!! And I think we may be having stuffed peppers tomorrow night. I actually pulled some italian sausage out of the freezer today and wondered what I was going to make with it.hehe
