Stuffed Peppers

I have been wanting to tackle stuffed peppers for a while now. This meal turned out to be a very easy, light, and delicious weeknight meal!

Stuffed Bell Peppers
  • 4 bell peppers in the color of your choice
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth, divided
  • 3 links of chicken sausage (I used sundried tomato)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 T chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated mozzarella
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bring 1 cup of broth to a boil. Add orzo and cook for 2 minutes less than package instructions. Drain any remaining broth.

Saute sausage in oil over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, until lightly browned.

Combine orzo, sausage, parsley, and Parmesan.

Cut tops off of peppers and hollow out to create a bowl. Place in a baking dish and pour remaining broth around peppers.

Fill peppers with orzo mixture and divide mozzarella to top each stuffed pepper.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cheese is melted.

You could very easily do this on Meatless Monday with sauteed mushrooms instead of sausage. Nice updates!
