Stuffed Peppers

These peppers were so easy to make and a great idea when peppers are on sale or if your garden is overflowing with them! Serve these up with cabbage or other leafy green and you have a complete meal! They also freeze well!

Stuffed peppers
8 bell peppers
1 lb Italian sausage
1 lb grass-fed ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C mushrooms, chopped
1 head of cauliflower, riced
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 350
Clean and remove the tops of the bell peppers, removing internal membrane
Brown sausage and beef in a large pan over medium heat adding salt and pepper then remove and set aside
In the same skillet add garlic, mushrooms and onions scraping up browned meat bits
Mix in cauliflower and sautee for about 3 minutes 
Add tomato paste and meat back in mixing well.
Stuff peppers with about 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture then place in 8x12 pan 
Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
