Rita's Stuffed Peppers - YUM!


I’m going to make it this evening for supper. Carol got the original recipe from Mary Ellen Wilson, who found it in a Kroger magazine. A well traveled meal perfect for this busy holiday season.

PIZZA STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

1 lb. Italian sausage (I prefer Bob Evans Italian in the roll)

1 medium onion, diced

2 cups cooked rice

1 ½ cups pizza sauce (an entire jar of Kroger pizza sauce, a couple ounces extra)

½ cup grated parmesan

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

3 large bell peppers, halved and scooped (the tri-color ones are great!)

Mozzarella cheese, either slices or shredded

Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 3500

In a skillet on medium heat, brown and crumble the sausage, then remove to a clean plate. (Drain a bit on paper towels). Add the diced onion to the skillet drippings; once wilted, add all ingredients, except the cheese and peppers. Mix well, once flavors are all blended, stuff mixture into pepper halves.

Add the stuffed peppers to a baking pan, add ½ cup of water. Cover well with foil. Bake 30-40 minutes, uncover, sprinkle with the cheese and put under broiler briefly until cheese is melted.
