Lately I have been feeling like I am making the same things over and over again. I decided that I wanted to try something really different that I have never made before.
We had left over spaghetti in the fridge from my mothers day dinner and it was amazing. So I wanted to add that to the dinner but to what?
As I am standing in the fridge I saw the peppers and a light bulb went off in my head! Hmmm spaghetti stuffed peppers? Why not!
Cook the spaghetti the way you like it, How we do ours is;
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain set aside.
In a large skillet heat up and add some oil, about a teaspoon. Add chopped up onion. Cook the onion until soft. Then stir in garlic. Then add the ground beef. (Or turkey, or chicken) Break up the meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until the meat is no longer pink.
You can even add crushed up tomatoes to this one, that is also good!
Take off the heat and add the cooked pasta.
Take the oil and drizzle on the bottom of the baking sheet. Cut the peppers in half and add them to the baking sheet. Drizzle the peppers with more oil. Put some salt and pepper on top of the peppers. Then fill the peppers with the spaghetti and add some grated cheese on top.
Bake that for 20 minutes, in a preheated oven at 400 and until the cheese has nicely melted on top.
Tasted amazing!! Even more so with a glass of wine !!
