Veal & Spinach Stuffed Peppers with Orzo




This dish looks amazing and tastes even better, great for some presentation flare if you’re looking to impress some friends!

What You’ll Need:

  • 4 Organic Bell Peppers, Red, Orange, Yellow
  • 0.5 lb Ground Veal
  • Tomato Sauce from San Marzano Tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Organic Spinach
  • Parsley & Basil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Butter or Beef tallow


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cut your peppers, remove the veins and seeds and chop off the tops, keep the tops for presentation
  2. Brown 1 chopped onion, chopped parsley and 1 garlic clove in butter, add in your 0.5 lb ground veal, and brown. Add tomato sauce to this and simmer for 5 minutes. Don’t want to over cook here because they are going in the oven, medium is fine.
  3. Cook your orzo, al dente about 1 cup, salt the water.
  4. Stuff your peppers with Meat/Sauce and spinach and orzo, layer these right to the top.
  5. Place in the oven standing up in a baking dish (one with sides is better) for 1 hour or until your peppers are brown. The last few minutes add mozzarella to the top and watch it melt 🙂 Garnish with fresh chopped basil.
