  • 1/2 cup brown rice, raw
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 medium bell pepper, green
  • 12 ounce sausage links, turkey, mild
  • 1 stalk green onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 2 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 medium bell pepper, orange
  • 1 medium bell pepper, yellow
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Serve With

  • 2 cup grapes


  • Cook rice as directed on package. Set aside in a large bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Heat an oven-safe skillet on the stove over medium. (if you do not have this, you will need to transfer to a baking dish just before cooking in the oven.)
  • Slice onion and green pepper; add to skillet and brown. Add cooked veggies to rice.
  • Using the same skillet and stirring to crumble, brown the sausage over medium: 8-10 minutes. Add to the rice mixture.
  • Dice green onions and add to rice along with salt, pepper, and thyme. Mix well.
  • Cut the remaining peppers across the top, about 1/4 of an inch down. This will be used to cover the filling. Remove the seeds and membrane. Place peppers in the oven-safe skillet (or baking dish) with the open side facing up. Fill with rice mixture and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and place the top portion of the pepper, back on.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the peppers have reached desired tenderness.
  • Serve with grapes on the side. (Serving size: 1 stuffed pepper, 1/2 cup grapes)
