Stuffed Peppers - Greek Style

I remember having stuffed peppers as a kid and I remember hating them!
There are some things kids just shouldn't have to eat because
it is torture for them and the parents.
I mean what parent wants to spend an hour cooking dinner just to hear their children complain and say things like "yuck, gross, do we have to eat this?"

Well, now that I am older I am a little more willing to try new things or "old" things for that matter to see if my taste buds have changed.

Greek Stuffed Peppers
Sausage cooked and chopped
1 bunch of spinach
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 small onion, minced
1 egg, beaten
1 cup orzo cooked
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 - 4 Bell Peppers, halved lengthwise, cores and ribs removed
2 (14oz) cans of diced or stewed tomato
1/3 cup of crumbled feta cheese

Preheat oven to 350
Precook the orzo
Brown the sausage

In a large bowl mix sausage, spinach, zucchini, onion, orzo,
egg, oregano, sald and a few grinds of pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.

Arrange pepper halves cut side up in 9 by 13in baking dish and fill each pepper half with the mixture. Pour tomatoes over the top and then sprinkle with feta cheese. Cover with foil bake about 30 minutes. Then uncover and bake about 25 more minutes until mixture is completely cooke and peppers are tender.

This was a nice meal. The peppers were very tender
and the flavor of the spinach and sausage was very good.
