Italian Sausage Stuffed Peppers

4 yellow bell peppers

1 1/2 pounds ground Italian sausage

1 can (8-ounces) tomato sauce

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon Italian seasonings

1 Tablespoon dried onion

1 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese

1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

.

In a saucepan, saute the sausage until golden brown and cooked through…break up any large bits into tiny pieces.  In a medium-sized bowl, combine the tomato sauce, spices and cheeses…add the cooked sausage and blend until well combined.  Set aside.  Slice the tops off the yellow peppers and remove the membranes and seeds from the inside.  Stuff each pepper with the sausage mixture and place in a baking dish…place the top of the pepper over the sausage mixture.  Add water so that it comes about 3/4-inch up the side of the peppers and cover the dish with foil.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour.

Tomato Sauce

.

1 medium onion, chopped and sauteed in 1 Tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons prepared minced garlic

1 can (28-ounce) petite diced tomatoes

1 can (6-ounce) tomato paste

1 can (8-ounce) tomato sauce

1 teaspoon basil

2 teaspoons dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon Italian seasonings

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 cup red wine

Saute onions in olive oil until golden brown.  Add tomatoes and spices, stirring well.  Add wine and mix until well combined.  Simmer over medium-low heat for about an hour.  If sauce gets too thick, thin it out with a little water, but don’t make it too thin.  When the peppers are ready, ladle a generous amount onto the center of a plate and place a stuffed pepper into the middle of the sauce.  OH MY GOSH this is delicious.  ENJOY!

BONE Appetit!
