Stuffed Green Peppers

 I LOVE to cook! and I was soo excited to make this when I got home from school...not that teaching quadrilateral classifications and Pythagorean therom is fun.....but I new I had a recipe, Dean Martin <pandora> and a bottle of wine at home! :) This was the BEST and I highly encourage making it!
 Here are all the ingredients! well the wine is for the cook! <hehehe>
 Cut the tops off of all the peppers... <you will use the tops for the rice mixture>
 The "inside" of the stuffed peppers.
1 cup brown rice
1 onion
2 tsp olive oil
2 links Italian Sausage
1/2 tsp oregano
 2 tsp Garlic Salt
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
Crushed red pepper <if you like it on the warmer side!>
-Preheat oven to 350-
I first browned the Jenni-o turkey sausage in the olive oil, then I added the veggies and spices.
I made the rice, then added it to the browned mixture.

Put a decent amount in each pepper....I only had 4 peppers, but the stuffing makes enough to stuff 5 peppers.
Bake for 30 minutes
when there are about 5 minutes left I added some low fat mozzarella cheese
