Stuffed Peppers

IMG_8716

 

I am addicted to the farmer’s market this summer.  I cannot get enough of the fresh produce with an emphasis on peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers.  At my last visit to the farmer’s market I brought home a lot of peppers.  All day I looked at them attempting to decide what to do with them.  Then I recalled my Mom serving stuffed peppers when I was young.  I couldn’t find her recipe so I reached out to my friend Google.  After reading multiple different recipes, I decided to make up my own.  The result was a winner!

Four large and preferably round bell peppers.

One cup orzo cooked al dente

Two links chorizo sausage removed from skin and cooked

Half a medium onion chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Parmesean cheese

Cut the top off each pepper and scoop out the inside.  Dice the tops of the peppers and place in a bowl.  Add the diced onion, the sausage, orzo, and cheese.  Stir until the ingrediants are mixed.  Add salt and pepper.  Stuff each pepper with the mixture, spray the top with olive oil and place into a baking dish.  Bake for thirty minutes at 350.

They were not Mom’s peppers but I think I like mine better!
