Stuffed Peppers

This weekend I was visiting a new blog I follow, Cucina di Barbara, and saw a post for Meat Stuffed Peppers and was inspired to make that for dinner. My recipe is little different. I use rice and meat for the stuffing. I had some extra zucchini which I chopped up and added it to the filling.

First I sauteed the onions in a little olive oil. Added the meat which I browned and then the zucchini, seasoning it with oregano, salt and pepper. Meanwhile I was making the rice, I used white rice but any kind would work. Mixed the rice and meat mixture together with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese and stuffed the peppers. Placed the peppers in a greased baking dish and topped with some Marinara sauce and baked at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Now that's a stuffed pepper!
