Orzo and Beef Stuffed Peppers

Kind of like a lasagna stuffing. Meat, Sauce, Pasta, and Cheese. Damn good Stuffed Peppers. I stuffed the peppers on Sunday. Chris popped them in the oven and a delicious dinner was the result.
I started by sauteing a chopped onion. Added the beef and browned it, seasoning with salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, and a touch of crushed red pepper. Next, I added some crushed tomatoes. That simmered for a little while, honestly, I don't remember how long! The orzo was cooked until al dente. The peppers cut, cored, and steamed. To the meat and sauce, I added shredded Mozzarella and Parmigiano. The Orzo was drained and added to the meat mixture.
The seasoning was adjusted just a bit. The stuffing went into the pepper halves. Chris heated them up for about 25 minutes at 350˙.
