Recipe by DeLallo Foods
"With its rice shape and fresh-bread, pasta flavor, orzo is one tiny cut with endless possibilities. Orzo began as a simple soup cut, but has extended its uses to nearly any application where rice is present. Try orzo alongside your next stir-fry, saute or roasted vegetable medley."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was an excellent recipe! I have had stuffed peppers before and have always been disappointed. Two things I changed/added: 1. I only used 1/2 pound of orzo. You definitely do not need a whole box. and 2. I added 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese to the meat mixture and then I sprinkled some more on top of the peppers. It added a little zing. My husband loved this, and so did my picky one-year old twins!!
I used ground sirloin, and I sprayed the pan with cooking spray to cut the olive oil down. I left the salt out b/c I thought the 28 oz can of tomatoes I used would be salty enough, this was a mistake, it was a little too bland since the tomatoes aren't in the peppers. Next time I will not use more salt, but I will add a can of tomatoes into the orzo mixture and stuff into 6 peppers (I had leftover stuffing with 4 large peppers, so adding the can of tomatoes should be the right amount for 6 next time.)
This is really REALLY good! I used red peppers and a mixture of beef/Italian sausage. My new favorite recipe!
