Linebackers and Stuffed Peppers

 2 replies

The Chiefs LB group is serviceable but could stand improvement – some of which will come as Willy Gay Jr. enters his second pro season. Anthony Hitchens had a good season last year but the Chiefs lost Damien Wilson to FA. I think there is a need to bring in a thumping middle linebacker type but I’ve seen comments saying this draft is thin at that position. Nevertheless, I am hoping the Chiefs draft a LB somewhere in their 6 picks (doubtless Veach will bring in one or two UDFAs for a look-see as well). Thoughts? And while you’re pondering…

Peperoni Ripieni al Pomodoro

Stuffed Green Peppers with Tomato Sauce

This recipe, which combines vegetables, meat, rice, eggs, cheese and oil, is a well-balanced meal just by itself. It is also very filling, and can easily be used as a main course dish.

Ingredients (regular / metric)

Large green peppers   4

Ground veal (or chicken or beef)   1 lb. / 500 g

Breadcrumbs   4 oz. / 125 ml

Cooked rice   1 cup / 250 ml

Bacon slices, chopped   4

Salt   1/2 tsp / 2 ml

Pepper   Pinch

Basil   Pinch (choose alternate personal preference as desired and in consideration of choice of meat)

Eggs   3

Parmesan cheese, grated   4 oz. / 125 ml

Olive oil   4 oz. / 125 ml

Tomato sauce   1 cup / 250 ml

  1. Remove stems from the peppers and cut off the tops, then scoop out the seeds and stand the peppers in a baking dish. (Grease the dish with a little olive or veg oil.)
  2. Mix together all the other ingredients except the tomato sauce, and fill the peppers with equal amounts of this stuffing.
  3. Place the tops back on and cook in a preheated oven at 375 F. for 1 hour.
  4. Heat tomato sauce. Place peppers on a serving platter and pour the hot sauce over the tops. Serve immediately.

Serves 4

Notes in italics are my own additions. We’ve used chicken and beef and both work well. As always: recipes are templates and can be modified, but this is a good basic recipe that stands up well on its own.
