How to Pick a Peck of Peppers


Confession: Sometimes when I go grocery shopping, my attention gets completely diverted by beautiful produce. I guess you can say I have a wandering eye when it comes to gorgeous fruits and vegetables. {Don't laugh. It's a serious problem.}

Learn how to make these Stuffed Italian Style Cubanelle Peppers.

There I am one minute, dutifully crossing things off my list, and then suddenly out of the corner of my eye I see an exceptionally attractive artichoke or a seductive bunch of tomatoes on the vine and - just like that - my cart and I are making our way over to items we have no particular use for, like moths to the flame.

Such was the case with a particularly inviting pair of cubanelle peppers that made their way into my shopping cart earlier this week. Their lime green, shiny outsides made them look like they belonged in a set of plastic vegetables that come with those Fisher Price kiddie kitchens. I knew I had to have them.

What I didn't know was what the heck I was going to do with them. Are these things spicy? No idea. Do they have a strong taste? Not a clue. Luckily, my best friend {Google} had all the answers I needed.

After a little research, I found a recipe that happened to include several things I already had on hand {my favorite kind!}. It was easy to put together and turned out to be pretty tasty, too. {The husband cleaned his plate, but c'mon... what else is new?}

As it turns out, I like cubanelle peppers and would definitely pick them up again. That is, unless the broccoli happens to be especially bewitching that day... ;)
