"This is an absolutely delicious vegetarian pepper recipe that is packed with nutrients! I love to make a big batch on Sunday, freeze some for easy and decadent (but healthy!) dinners, and keep a couple in the refrigerator for weekday work lunches. I haven't met anyone that doesn't go nuts for these; in fact, I now have to make extra for friends' lunches (hence the giant batch!)"

whole wheat orzo pasta
orange bell peppers
garlic, thinly sliced
1 (8 ounce) package
sliced fresh white mushrooms
1 (8 ounce) package
sliced cremini mushrooms
1 (28 ounce) can
diced Italian paste tomatoes (such as San Marzano)
1 (14 ounce) can
whole Italian paste tomatoes (such as San Marzano), drained and torn into large chunks
shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
torn fresh basil leaves
red pepper flakes
salt and ground black pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese, divided
Changed this up a bit, added spinach,gazebo beans and other veggies on hand. Used brown rice instead of orzo, everyone loved this including my teens!
Will make again
These are excellent! I halved the recipe. I only had ground Oregano so I only used about a teaspoon, maybe a tad more, but a whole tablespoon would have been way too much...otherwise I made it exactly as written. Oh, except my local Kroger didn't have Cremini mushrooms so I just used extra buttons. The flavor is very good, both my husband and I couldn't believe there was no meat. Next time I will make a full batch and freeze them for lunches. This recipe is a keeper! Oh, beware, these were a tad too spicy for my husband, so if you have a wimpy palette go easy on the crushed red pepper (half it, don't omit it)...and use fresh basil, it really makes the flavors pop.
Made it exactly as directed and it was delicious!!!
These taste great! The recipe is easy to follow and you don't need too many ingredients either.
