Stuffed Peppers

Growing up, both our mothers made stuffed peppers for dinner because it was an inexpensive and wholesome meal that stretched a few ingredients to feed our families. However, I prefer this grown-up version because it incorporates sweet red peppers, flavored chicken sausage instead of beef, and Near East’s toasted pine nut couscous mix which adds a bit of spice to the filling. This recipe is pretty forgiving though, so feel free to substitute whatever ground meat you may have on hand. You can also use rice like our moms did if couscous isn’t available.  Read more of this post
