Today I am working from home, which is awesome because my husband is on Spring break and so we get to have lunch together. We had Atkins shakes this morning for breakfast and wanted a heavier lunch so I went online last night and found a ton of new recipes to try in the coming weeks (THANK YOU skinnytaste.com).
Alright, let me start by saying that I am a HUGE fan of stuffed peppers. And I have been craving them lately but always used rice in the filling. Cauliflower rice is good as a texture substitute but I’m serious about my stuffed peppers and was NOT open to the “faux” fillers option on this one. However, I found the following recipe and it was mind-blowingly delicious. Craving fulfilled, crisis averted and I only consumed 5 net carbs! The internet is a wonderful thing.
Here’s the recipe:
*** We obviously halved everything to make 2 servings but there was still filling left over that did not fit in the pepper.
Spray casserole dish with PAM. Cook ground sirloin and sausage at low to medium heat, stirring often. Once meat is cooked through, drain thoroughly. Add all butter, onions, garlic, oregano, seasoned pepper, fennel seed and 3/4 of tomatoes. Simmer over low heat approximately 20 minutes.
