Wedding Potluck: Stuffed Bell Peppers

It's the day of the wedding for For the potluck I'm making stuffed bell peppers. Originally I had planned on making fajitas this week so I had everything I needed.

Quinoa/Sausage Stuffed Bell Peppers
4 bell peppers, any colors
Quiona, chicken broth, bay leaf
Italian sausage (I used sweet but spicy would be good)
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley
salt and pepper

-Gut and cut the peppers, either top off or length-wise so they will fit in an oven-safe dish. Boil them for about 5 minutes.
-Cook quinoa according to directions. I used chicken broth instead of water and added a bay leaf
-Oops, breakfast is in the picture too :-)

-Brown the Italian sausage with onion, garlic, add parsley and remove from heat

-Cook quinoa like rice, until water is absorbed, remove bay leaf

-Add quinoa to Italian sausage so it will soak up the juices. Mix them and stuff into peppers. I stuffed pepper and then put the rest of the mix in the bottom of the dish so not to waste

-Here's the cute oven dish I used-thanks Gramma!

-Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Serve warm. Add parsley to garnish. Yum!

This is where the reception is, beautiful. Off to work!

  1. Yay! By the way, you were INCREDIBLE! Thank you so much for all of your hard work. I saw glimpses of you and Rachel here and there, and every time I did I was like "damn... this wouldn't be possible without them." I'm glad you came out for the ceremony too (even though I was a blubbering fool) instead of working through it. Again, thank you so much! You rock. :)
