Orzo Stuffed Peppers

Updated: Apr 1, 2019

A few weeks ago I posted an Orzo Pasta Salad recipe. Today’s post is a perfect way of using up leftovers from the salad and in doing so creates another vegetarian meal. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 2 peppers ⠀ 3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan or pecorino for a vegetarian option⠀ Orzo Pasta Salad (recipe below)⠀ ⠀ Cut the peppers in half through the stalk. Carefully cut the seeds out. ⠀ Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with a little oil and season. Roast at 210 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and fill the peppers with the orzo pasta salad. ⠀ Sprinkle with Parmesan and roast for another 20-30 minutes. Serve with a green salad. ⠀ ⠀ Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe ⠀ 3 Courgettes chopped⠀⠀ 2 mixed peppers ⠀⠀ 2 cloves garlic crushed ⠀⠀ 1 red onion cut into wedges ⠀⠀ 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts ⠀⠀ Basil⠀⠀ 250g orzo⠀⠀ Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and @belazu_co balsamic vinegar.
