Baked Stuffed Peppers

Looking for classic recipes and new variations. I know the possibilities are endless, so please help me satisfy my comfort cravings.

  1. Saute sweet italian sausage and drain off fat (I use vege sausage). Put in bowl. Add cooked rice (brown), chopped onions, tomato sauce, pressed garlic and parm cheese. Stuff into peppers and place peppers in baking pan with tomato sauce 1/4 way up peppers. Cover w/foil and bake 350 for 45 minutes.

    1. I make a bunch of vegetarian versions. A couple standbys:

      Rice, cooked chopped spinach, toasted pine nuts and raisins, bound with egg
      Lentils, grated carrots or sweet potatoes, onions, curry powder, cilantro
      Smashed chickpeas, bulgur, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes and parsley

      1. I'll point you back to a thread on this a couple of years ago - I really like the Spanish Stuffed Peppers recipe...

        1. I saw this on Everyday Italian the other day and it looked delicious....

          1. Quinoa is a great alternative to rice in almost any recipe.
