Don’t you love placing oh-so-beautiful food in front of family and friends? Me too. It’s just one way to let them know they’re special in your life. And yes, sometimes you have to go beyond a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and break out the goooooooooood stuff!
But, no worries! This recipe is simple and most of the ingredients are probably sitting in your pantry and fridge! I know you’re a busy mom, so you need a dee-lish, super-easy recipe that makes your family smile — every time! Don’t worry — this recipe does just that!
When days get a tad bit hairy and stress levels are rising, come to the rescue and serve these loaded stuffed peppers. They’re a comfort food without tons of pasta! For some reason pasta bring out the meanies in me, so any comfort food that is low on pasta is a win in my house!
Oh, and did I tell you this recipe uses rice? Yes ma’am. After living in Southeast Asia for seven years, you better believe it that I have some rice recipes up my sleeve! Fried rice, cheesy rice balls, rice pudding — I’ve made and served all those! But I have to say, I like the recipes where rice is playing supporting role — not the main character! But I am a rice snob. If you want some reeeeaaaaallllly good rice — skip Uncle Ben’s and grab some Jasmine rice. I’ll get off my rice soap box now!
In this dish, the beautiful green peppers are taking main stage. And they will get a standing ovation from everyone!
Don’t you love colorful food? It makes eating all the more fun! And hey, no food coloring needed to make this gorgeous green color! ;0)
One sneaky tip for you — you’ll need some musical theory lessons for this recipe. What?! No, not kidding. Try to reminisce to your younger years when you were studying your piano theory and came across the word Allegro. Yes, it still means fast. Buuuuuuuut, you need to take the term to the grocery store!
A few weeks ago I learned about an amazing sauce that makes your mouth want to do a happy dance! It’s called Allegro and I use it in this recipe — and almost all my other recipes now that use Worcestire sauce.
If you can’t grab a jar of Allegro at your market or wait to order it from Amazon, don’t stress! Just substitutes with worcheshire sauce. It will still be yummy — but all the super-yummy, recipe tastiness will pop in your mouth if you grab some Allegro. It’s in the marinade aisle and is super easy to find.
