Stuffed Tomatoes

I’ve never been a big fan of “stuffed” anything, but lately I’m changing my tune. These stuffed tomatoes are awesome. As always, you can make this vegetarian by omitting the sausage. It will be just as lovely.

Ingredients:

Four tomatoes

1/2 cup cooked brown rice

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 shallot, diced

1 sweet Italian sausage, casing removed, meat crumbled

1 yellow bell pepper diced

1 tbs parsley

1 tbs basil

Salt and Pepper

red pepper

Olive oil

Cheese for topping (I used a four cheese blend from Trader Joes)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degree. In a saute pan heat olive oil. Add sausage to pan and cooked through.

Add garlic, shallot and pepper to pan and cook until soften. Add salt and pepper and red pepper.

Turn heat off and add rice, parsley and basil.

Hallow out four tomatoes and fill with stuffing. Top with cheese and bake in oven until cheese is slightly bubbling.
