I’d like to begin today’s post by saying: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! We love you and think you’re really great!
The recipe I have for today is one that Megan introduced me to last fall and I really wish I made it more often. It is delicious and relatively easy. I like it because it’s such a great combination of flavors.
2 (2 cup each) bags BOIL-IN-A-BAG RICE
6 BELL PEPPERS (Red or Green)
1 lb. ITALIAN SAUSAGE
1 can ROTEL TOMATOES
2 cups MONTEREY JACK CHEESE, shredded
1 jar MARINARA SAUCE
Preheat oven to 400°.
Prepare rice according to package directions.
Fill a large pot, 2/3 full of water. Bring to a boil.
While the water is heating, remove the tops and seeds from the peppers. Slice in half.
Place pepper halves in boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove, set aside.
Brown sausage, drain fat. Stir in rice and tomatoes. Heat through. Add cheese. Stir until melted. Remove from heat.
Place peppers in baking dish. Fill with sausage/rice mixture. Top with marinara sauce.
Bake for 15 minutes.
We enjoyed this with green beans and homemade rolls.
Notes: I used turkey sausage and colby jack cheese. This worked out fine. This recipe makes a lot, but the leftovers are really good too.
