Stuffing for peppers


Ingredients
1lb ground turkey
4 large green bell peppers, tops cut and de-seeded
4 cups cooked white rice
28oz crushed tomatoes
14.5oz diced tomatoes
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Locatelli cheese
1 clove garlic, grated
pink salt, pepper, (dried or fresh) basil, oregano, mint, red pepper
flakes and cayenne pepper to taste
shredded mozzarella and grated Locatelli for garnish (if desired)

Mix 2 cups of cooked rice with 14.5oz diced tomatoes and 1 clove of grated garlic.
Add salt to taste, if desired. If rice is still hot, allow mixture to cool to room temp.
In a separate bowl, mix one egg, breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup locatelli cheese and spices.
Add room temp rice mixture to this and stir to combine. Add turkey and combine.
Add a small amount of salt to the inside of the peppers, if desired. Add 1 or 2 tbs of
crushed tomatoes to each pepper then stuff with stuffing. Replace tops and place in crock
pot with a small amount of crushed tomatoes at the bottom. Pour remaining tomatoes over the
top and cook according to your crock pot's manufacturer's specifications. (I cook mine on low for 6 hours.)
Serve with the remaining rice and top with shredded mozzarella and/or Locatelli.
(No photo of the finished product as they tend to look a little mushy. They still taste delish!)

Recipe for Chicken and mushrooms in cream sauce over fettuccine pasta

Ingredients
1 1/2 lb chicken,
2 cups mushrooms sliced or whole, your choice. If I'm in the mood to slice, I slice.
3 large cloves of garlic, grated
1/4 cup green onion, sliced (optional)
14 oz chicken or beef broth, depending on which protein you are using
1 cup whole milk
One 13.5 oz can of coconut milk
One 12oz can of evaporated milk
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
1/2 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp ginger (optional)
1/2 lb fettuccine
Locatelli cheese
salt and pepper to taste
red pepper flakes to taste

In a large pan, melt 2 tbls butter with coconut oil, add chicken, mushrooms and garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
Cook slowly until chicken is no longer pink and mushrooms are cooked the way you like them.
Remove chicken and mushrooms from pan with slotted spoon (sometimes I use a large fork),
do not drain the pan. Add 2 tbls butter, when melted add the broth and simmer for 8-10 minutes to reduce.
Add the the whole milk, simmer 8-10 minutes to reduce. Add the evaporated milk, simmer 8-10 minutes.
Finally, add the coconut milk, and ginger (if using), and simmer 8-10 minutes to reduce.
Whisk in cornstarch, taste for seasoning, add if needed, and simmer another 2-3 minutes.
Add the chicken and mushrooms back to the pan with the green onion and simmer lightly while you cook the fettuccine.

**The pasta should never wait for the sauce,
the sauce should always wait for the pasta
**

When the fettuccine is al dente, add it to the pan with the chicken. Turn off the heat and allow it to
stand for about 5 minutes for the sauce to thicken and the pasta to start absorbing the flavor.
Sprinkle with Locatelli.
