Herb and Sausage-Stuffed Peppers
It takes only five ingredients to net you this comfort-food classic. We've updated traditional stuffed peppers by turning to tiny couscous pasta (use whole-wheat for more nutrition) instead of rice, and flavoring the filling with garlicky, herby goat cheese for extra richness. Turkey Italian sausage is a smart choice, bringing with it all the seasonings that make it “Italian” and adding far more flavor than, say, ground beef or turkey. That’s how we like to do five-ingredient cooking—by turning to foods that bring more to the table than just one flavor note.
