 “If it’s so beautifully arranged on the plate – you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.”

The use of the colorful bell pepper makes this a versatile, flavorful meal. It’s sure to please!

Ingredients

  • 6 large bell peppers (various colors), tops cut off, seeded
  • 12 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups instant brown rice
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, such as mozzarella or cheddar

Preparation

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  2. Place peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish. Fill the dish with 1/2 inch of water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the water and transfer the peppers to another dish.
  3. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a spoon, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes and rice; increase heat to high and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the rice is softened but still moist, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the rice absorbs the remaining liquid, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir basil and half the cheese into the rice mixture. Divide the filling among the peppers, then top with the remaining cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
