Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

I am allergic to Peppers, but DH loves them...so this one's for him. They smelled great! I made them with 1 green pepper cut in half since I was only making them for 1 person.

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

1 green pepper, cut in half from top to bottom and de-seeded
a little less than 1/3 c cooked Trader Joe's 10 minute faro
2 Tbsp chopped onion
1/2 c or less vegetarian crumbles
leftover homemade spaghetti sauce or jarred sauce of your choice
2 Tbsp Italian Panko bread crumbs (I use Ian's brand)
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp shredded mozzarella or Italian cheese blend

First cook 10 minute faro according to package directions.

Next, cut a green pepper in half from top to bottom. Remove seeds and membranes from pepper and rinse well. Boil a pot of water. Once water is boiling drop pepper halves in and boil @ 10 minutes till done. Remove from the pan and drain.You can also steam peppers if you wish.

While farro and water are on the stove, chop up 2 Tbsp onion. Place onion and veggie crumbles in a small pan along with a little water. Water saute over md- md/high heat till onion is tender. Reduce heat to low/md for a few minutes.  Add cooked farro and enough spaghetti sauce to combine and pull it all together.

Put a little water and spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a baking dish, put peppers on top and fill each pepper with the farro crumble mixture. Next mix Panko, Parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses. Top each green pepper half and bake till cheese is melty. You can put it under the broiler for a bit too to get a nice crunchy brown topping. To serve I put some extra sauce on the plate and the finished green pepper on top.  Enjoy!
