Stuffed Peppers
My husband loves his mother's stuffed pepper recipe. It calls for tomato juice laced with brown sugar for basting. She cooks hers on top of the stove. I made half of this recipe. I made some changes: I added 2-3 T. of brown sugar to the stuffing, used crushed tomatoes because my local grocery store doesn't carry tomato sauce (the consistency is fairly close), used brown rice instead of white, put all of the tomatoes in with the meat and rice before stuffing, and covered the peppers with their tops for baking. I wish that I had followed someone's suggestion of blanching the peppers first. I didn't feel like the pepper was cooked enough which is why I gave this recipe a 4 instead of a 5. My husband was satisfied with the sweetness of the stuffing with the little bit of brown sugar added. The sweetness was pretty light actually. I believe that sugar is added to tomato sauce, but not to crushed tomatoes, so what I added may have been just enough to make up the difference. The ground beef that I buy is quite lean, so I never drain it after cooking. I used some leftover rice that I had in my freezer, so I thought this recipe was quick and easy. My husband (the dishwasher) was pleased that I didn't dirty a lot of pots in making this.

Jamie's Minestrone
This is a great base soup recipe. I emptied my refrigerator of any vegetables that needed to be eaten soon, including some tomatoes (in place of some of the tomato sauce), a sweet potato, cabbage and frozen spinach. I used 5 cups of frozen turkey broth that I had left over from making turkey carcass soup after Thanksgiving, no water. I used dried herbs as I did not have fresh. I also added a 1/2 pound of browned Italian sausage. The broth is incredibly flavourful. It made a lot of soup and I will be enjoying this great soup all week.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna
I was very pleased with the results of this recipe. I cut the recipe in half to make a smaller lasagna for one of 8 dinner guests who is vegetarian. The meat eaters sampled it and loved it too. As per other suggestions I added some carrots. I didn't have pasta sauce on hand. I substituted a can of chopped tomatoes, some tomato sauce and Italian seasoning.
