Stuffed Peppers with Orzo & Sausage :: Farm to Table Recipe

Greetings Farm Foodies,

Today’s recipe is brought to you out of necessity. You see, we were visiting with some friends over the weekend and they had piles (like PILES) of peppers and they offered some to us. My hubby, who is always up for some free fresh veggies, decided to take many many peppers. We kind of peppers coming out of ours ears. Our friends suggests making stuffed peppers which we have never tried at home. Hubs said he was willing to try a stuffed pepper so I did a little research and figured out what I thought would go good together.

So, here’s my made up farm-to-table recipe for stuffed peppers featuring sausage, mushrooms, and orzo. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. In a medium size sauce pan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add orzo and cook as package directs.
  2. Cut three bell peppers in half, removing all seeds, stems, and veins. Place in glass baking dish with 1/2 cup of water. Place in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add sausage to a large skillet and brown at medium heat. Add onion and cook 3-4 minutes until golden. Add chopped garlic and mushroom. Stir. Cook for 5 minutes.

    Ok so everything that you stuff the peppers with sounds amazing.Can you recommend something besides bell peppers? I’m not a big fan of them.

    I think a stuffed winter squash (acorn, hubbard, delicata, etc.) would be wonderful too. I would recommend baking the squash before hand (usually takes 60-80 minutes at 350), then adding the stuffing, and finally warming the stuffed squash for 10-15 minutes. Let me know how it turns out. 🙂

    Yay! Let me know how yours turns out. 🙂
