What's for Dinner?

I'm running low on blog topics and I don't want to disappoint my vast readers so I'm posting my dinner menu.

No, I didn't mean to imply you are vast, sorry for the misunderstanding.

Inside-out peppers served with Asparagus

I call this inside-out peppers because it's a traditional stuffed pepper recipe but the peppers are on the inside of the mix instead of the out

If you're not on a low-carb diet you can add cooked rice to the mixture halfway through the simmer

Preheat oven to 425, I've set mine to convection roast.
prepare asparagus stalks (I just snap the bottoms off, but you can peel the lower half if you want to take up the time)
Put the asparagus stalks in a shallow pan and drizzle with olive oil, set aside until the oven is hot. Roast for 12 to 20 minutes depending on how thick the stalks are. Optional: toss in slivered garlic cloves halfway through, I forgot to slice some up tonight

Brown a pound or two of ground beef (depending on your family size, of course)
While that's cooking, chop one or two green, red, or yellow bell peppers

drain off the fat if you need to
add the chopped pepper
pour in a half jar or so of spaghetti sauce (flavor of your choice)
and a cup of water
crumble in a palm-full each of oregano, basil and marjoram
add in a healthy slug of worcestershire sauce (aka: "what's this here?" sauce)

simmer with the lid off until it's nice and thick about 10-20 minutes
salt and pepper to taste

So good the pan was cleaned without a trace!

Yes, that likely was a quilt or a part of one. Quilting is big in our neck of the woods.

Actually, since the weekend, "vast" applies. No offense taken.

That looks yummy.\, btw.

Don't know what the \, was...we'll blamed the chubby fingers.

Lorraine, I'm vast too, these days, haven't seen this number on the scale since I was with child.

What are you doing up this early? (for you, not for me...)

VE said...

Of course as a man...all I see are dirty dishes that I must now clean...

I'm always making stuffed peppers - but sometimes I only have one or two peppers left in a large bag that I, that recipe would work out well.

I'll be trying that!!!
