I was hunting down things to force down the vegetables....which usually only happens when I add carbs....enter....exhibit a....and no diets were actually harmed in the making of this newest recipe. I found it at kalynskitchen and I thought...hey, that doesn't sound half bad....and it wasn't....so if you are looking for a way to shove a green pepper into your diet, might I suggest this stuffed pepper?

Instructions: Cook 1 c. of rice and set aside. Slice the top off of four bell peppers and hallow out the seeds/wash. Spray a pan with cooking oil to later place peppers inside. Slice up the green pepper from the top and set aside. Heat 2 t. of oil and saute the pepper you cut from the top, and 1 diced white onion. Cook until it is soft (not brown). Pull out and then add 2 links (8 oz total) of sweet italian sausage to your pan and brown. Add onion back along with 1/2 t.fennel, 1/2t. oregano. Add 1 c. cooked rice, and 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese. Cook for 1-2 minutes all together. Stuff into hallowed peppers. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes in a baking dish. Add 1/4 c. mozerella to the top of the pepper mix and bake an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned.
