Jack-o-Lantern Stuffed Peppers
Here’s what you need to make Jack-o-Lantern Stuffed Peppers:
- 4 orange bell peppers
- 1 lb Italian pork sausage
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 can petite diced tomatoes, drained
- 1 cup prepared brown rice
- 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large skillet, cook the Italian sausage and onion over medium-high heat until cooked through. Stir in the garlic and cook another three minutes, until fragrant.
Add the tomatoes and rice and stir to mix.
Prepare the peppers by slicing off the top and removing the seeds and lining inside the peppers. Use a paring knife to cut a jack-o-lantern face into the front of each pepper.
Place the peppers in a baking dish and use a spoon to fill the inside of each one with the rice and meat mixture. Top with shredded parmesan cheese.
Pour the Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice into the bottom of the baking dish. This additional step will add delicious fall flavor to your stuffed peppers and ensure they are moist and delicious!
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the tops of the peppers to the melted cheese and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy!
