Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • 4 large green bell peppers
  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 shredded mozzarella
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan

Cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds. In a large pot or kettle, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water, then set aside.
Cook orzo according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Drain orzo and stir into meat mixture. Add marinara, tomato, basil, rosemary and red pepper flakes. Spoon mixture into the peppers.
Place in a greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Uncover. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted! (Makes 4 servings.)
