    Default More on the quest to eat better

    I made a stuffed red pepper. Bell peppers are one of the things I don't
    normally like. I think it's because I've only tried them raw and they
    taste too strong.

    I decided to try a red bell pepper and stuff it with rice, tomato sauce,
    seasonings and ground meat. I used the "meatloaf mix" because I didn't
    have any meat on hand to grind, and chuck wasn't on sale.

    I really liked it! I put just a tiny bit of freshly shredded parm after
    it came out of the oven. The pepper was so big that I cut it in half
    and had two portions; one to eat tonight, and one for lunch tomorrow.

    Great idea. I'd just about forgotten about stuffed green peppers,
    and the red pepper has more flavor and presence. Thanks for the
    posting, sounds like some retro fun, gotta go try this. Maybe with
    less rice and a fried egg as a topping. Or some southwest flavor.

    That is one of those 70's dishes we still love. I stuff peppers with a
    mixture of minced beef, mushrooms, tomatoes onions and herbs, bake them,
    then serve with rice. Or for vegetarians I do it with nuts instead of
    meat. If Cheryl wants to ramp up her veg intake
    she can try adding more to the stuffing.

    I seem to remember you like zucchini or yellow squash, right? I
    love stuffed zucchini. I first learned about stuffing zucchini from
    the original Moosewook cookbook eons ago. So I googled around and
    found this interesting recipe I think you might like. It's a Mexican
    stuffed zucchini.....zuccanoes....

    something different for you to try....they sound yummy.

    Jean's website find is useful; you type in the name of a dish and get
    a load of different recipes for it; lots of variations on a theme.

    I decided to try a red bell pepper and stuff it with rice, tomato
    sauce,
    seasonings and ground meat. I used the "meatloaf mix" because I didn't
    have any meat on hand to grind, and chuck wasn't on sale.
