Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite meals to make. I change it up all the time with quinoa or rice and also many different ingredients. Sometimes an Italian one with sausage, marinara mushrooms, rice & Parmesan cheese. It's a great meal in one or serve it as your side and veggie, next too a grilled steak or chicken. The list can go on for these babies! Enjoy and as I make other recipes with stuffed peppers, I promise to be good about measuring my ingredients and taking a photo to share.

Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers
