Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I hardly ever make stuffed peppers but I saw some really nice peppers at the market and thought I would make them.

To 2 pounds of ground meat, I added a diced medium onion and lots of diced garlic. Add 1 cup of cooked rice ( I used brown) and 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese.

Add salt and pepper and diced parsley. Mix in 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese and a log of goat cheese. Mix this together and fry a small piece and taste for seasoning. Adjust accordingly.

I used Cubanelle and Poblano peppers. The Poblanos are a bit spicy.

Halve the peppers and remove the veins and seeds. Stuff each pepper with the meat filling.

Drizzle with olive oil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until they are cooked through.

The finished Poblanos.

The cubanelles........Yum!

Drain the juice from the peppers and add it to a can of crushed tomatoes in a skillet. Add some grated cheese, I used 1/2 cup of Asiago.

Mix the tomato sauce into a pound of boiled spaghetti.

Serve one of each pepper on top of a bed of the spaghetti.

Sprinkle with a bit of Parmesan cheese.
