healthy, delicious, and nutritious?

I forgot to mention easy too!

I'm talking about the Stuffed Peppers I made for dinner last night! I've made them before from a recipe, but this time I just winged it, and they turned out better than ever! I never write my recipes down, but this time I did because I want to be able to recreate this!

Thank goodness Josh took a TwitPic of it!

Here's all you do:
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brown 1lb. ground beef, add 1 medium white onion, 1 tbs. minced garlic, salt & pepper, 1 tbs. Worcheshire sauce, fresh basil, 1 jar of your favorite mariana sauce (I used Bertolli Olive & Garlic sauce this time - Buy 1 Get 1 Free at Publix!), 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, and about 1/2 cup of firmly cooked Orzo pasta. Just drain the pasta and add to meat sauce, mix everything together and fill 4 large bell peppers.
  • Pop it in the oven for about 45 minuets and periodically add any additional sauce to the top of the baking peppers. Top with mozzarella cheese a few minuets before the baking is complete.
I am looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner tonight!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
