Birda Mae's Recipe corner:Stuffed Peppers

                                         I got this image from here

  • 6 small to medium peppers red or green ,13/4to 2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water



  1. Preheat oven to 350o.  Cut tops from peppers and remove seeds and ribs, keeping peppers whole.  Brush outside of peppers. with 2 teaspoons olive oil.
  2. In a medium frying pan, heat remaining olive over medium heat.  Add onion and cook stirring to break up lumps, until it begins to lose its pinkness, 5to7 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove sausage and onion to a medium bowl.  Add rice,parsley, Parmesan cheese, and egg.  Toss to mix.  Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Stuff peppers, with rice and sausage filling, mounding top slightly.  Place peppers in a 13x9 inch baking
  5. dish.  Mix tomato sauce with water and pour into dish around peppers. Bake 45 minutes.
 Variation:
I used ground beef in mine I didn't really care for pouring that tomato sauce and water in the pan, but
I got the recipe from  the 365 Easy Italian Recipes cookbook.  I love this cookbook ,honey, believe me when
I tell you it's the best 4 dollars I spent on amazon it's just that I should have fixed them like Birda Mae use to
 she put the tomato sauce in the pepper with the stuffing and they were awesome.  My Amazon clicky thing isn't working  I apologize that's why I included the image.

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain!
