Texas rice is having a record year with some of the highest yields in the nation for 2017. And that’s great news for Texas rice lovers like me. My favorite rice variety is called Texmati. I used it in a Spanish Rice recipe a few years back.
I love the buttery flavor of this rice. And even though my fall back is to combine it with Spanish or Mexican spices, it works well with all kinds of flavors. The same goes for peppers. They lend themselves to warm southern flavors. But sometimes you have to shake things up. So, this week I thought we could explore some Italian flavors.
This recipe is way more than I ever expected. There is the sweetness of the peppers, robust flavor in the sausage and buttery rice. Then add the creaminess of the cheeses and the punch of the pesto, and you have one tasty meal.
Stuff each pepper and place in a 9×13 baking dish. There will likely be some Parmesan left over from your package, so be sure to sprinkle a little more on top of each before putting them in the oven. You will bake them for 30 minutes or until the tops begin to brown.
Congrats to the Texas rice farmers for an outstanding 2017. We hope you have a ‘rice’ day! From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
