Recipe Ingredients for Smokey Stuffed Peppers

6 large (2-1/4 per lb, approx 3-3/4" long, 3" dia) Peppers, Sweet, Green
2 cup Instant Brown Rice
0.5 cup leaves, whole Basil, Fresh
1.5 large whole (3" dia) Tomatoes, Red, Ripe
1.5 cup Natural Goodness Chicken Broth
1 cup, shredded Mozzarella, Part Skim Milk, Low Moisture Cheese
16 oz Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links

Recipe Directions for Smokey Stuffed Peppers

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

  2. Place peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish. Fill the dish with 1/2 inch of water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the water and transfer the peppers to a roasting pan.

  3. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes and rice; increase heat to high and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the rice is softened but still moist, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the rice absorbs the remaining liquid, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir basil and half the cheese into the rice mixture. Divide the filling among the peppers, then top with the remaining cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
