Gluten Free Italian Stuffed Peppers are stuffed with veggies, rice, and meaty Italian sausage. A must try.
Have you started planting a garden this year? The season is here and I am beyond ecstatic. Of course, this is the first year in a long time that we will not be planting a garden; however, that does not mean I will not be basking in all the garden fresh produce.
We happen to have a wonderful fresh market nearby and also a farmers market. I absolutely love visiting both each week and loading up on fresh produce. There is something about that fresh produce that just makes my heart happy. It honestly makes me feel healthy just looking at it, although, I may be eating a handful of chocolate chips while looking at it. It counts, right?
One of my favorite meals to make during the peak of gardening season is stuffed peppers. In the past, our garden would always be stocked full of green bell peppers, so it was only natural to stuff those peppers and bake them up into a delicious meal.
Each year, I always tried different variations of stuffed peppers to keep them fun and exciting. This past week I tried gluten free Italian stuffed peppers. These peppers were made with Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and parsley, tossed with a little bit of olive oil. I even added in some Parmesan cheese. A few other additions that could be added are fresh tomatoes or sweet peppers too.
Once I had the meat mixture ready to go, I added in a cup of cooked rice, and then stuffed the peppers. I topped each pepper with a sprinkle of shredded Italian cheese; lastly I baked them in the oven. I love that the cheese comes out slightly browned and crispy. The peppers are tender and perfect for a wonderful light meal.
We even like to pair ours with fresh sweet corn.
