healthy, delicious, and nutritious?

I forgot to mention easy too!

I'm talking about the Stuffed Peppers I made for dinner last night! I've made them before from a recipe, but this time I just winged it, and they turned out better than ever! I never write my recipes down, but this time I did because I want to be able to recreate this!

Thank goodness Josh took a TwitPic of it!

Here's all you do:
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brown 1lb. ground beef, add 1 medium white onion, 1 tbs. minced garlic, salt & pepper, 1 tbs. Worcheshire sauce, fresh basil, 1 jar of your favorite mariana sauce (I used Bertolli Olive & Garlic sauce this time - Buy 1 Get 1 Free at Publix!), 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, and about 1/2 cup of firmly cooked Orzo pasta. Just drain the pasta and add to meat sauce, mix everything together and fill 4 large bell peppers.
  • Pop it in the oven for about 45 minuets and periodically add any additional sauce to the top of the baking peppers. Top with mozzarella cheese a few minuets before the baking is complete.
I am looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner tonight!
