Sausage Stuffed Green Peppers

I LOVED these.  I know the sausage isn’t very healthy for you, but these were really yummy.  Most of my kids just ate the filling out of the middle, unfortunately, but I loved the whole thing.

2 cups pre-cooked brown rice
1 large onion, chopped
Portabella mushrooms, chopped
Tops and bottoms of the green pepper, chopped
1 tube pkg. italian flavored sausage
1 tsp. oregano
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mozzarella cheese - for the top

Saute onions, mushrooms and pepper (leftover from cutting the green pepper, see below) and ground italian sausage until sausage is done.  Add in Oregano, parmesan cheese and salt and pepper.

Barely slice the bottom off of the green pepper to help it stand up.  Cut a good 1/2” - 1” off the top of the pepper and scoop out the middle.  Stuff your pepper with the filling and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  Bake at 375 for 20 - 30 minutes, until done.
