(As part of attending OnlineBlogCon this week, I have been changing up my blog to a fresher template. Hoping to have it completely done in a week, but let me know what you think of the new color scheme!)
I have decided to start going through my cookbooks (as I have way too many that aren't getting used) and start sharing my adapted versions of the recipes in them.
My mom suggested a few weeks ago that we should have stuffed green peppers and found a recipe in the Taste of Home Favorite Brand Name Recipes 2002 book. We had almost everything in the house to make these so it seemed practical. Plus this is a favorite comfort food of mine.
We also didn't have enough chopped tomato or onion, so I increased the amount of zucchini, mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.
|Ready for the oven|
I sprinkled on some parm and let them cook for another 10 minutes. I opened the oven for a peak, and smelt a slight burning smell and decided they were done. (Recipe called for 20 more minutes).
|Right out of the oven with just Parmesan cheese|
|Added mozzarella cheese!|
I served the peppers with a multi-grain bread I made the day before in my family's breadmaker.
I would definitely make this recipe again but this time, I would possibly cut the ingredients back a bit more and add some ground turkey.
