  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add smoked sausage, onion, garlic and Italian seasoning and cook for 6-9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and smoked sausage is brown. Stir in white wine vinegar, cooked orzo, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup mozzarella; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Mix together the marinara sauce and cinnamon and stir 1/4 cup of the sauce into the skillet. Spoon remaining sauce into the bottom of a 9x9-inch baking dish.
  4. Cut the tops off of the peppers, remove the seeds, stuff them with the orzo-smoked sausage mixture and place in baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and bake until heated through, 25 minutes.

I will definitely make this again but without the peppers. The Chorizo and Orzo were delicious on their own.

I probably will not make this recipe again. My husband did not care for it either.

I used ground spicy sausage (cooked until brown and crumbly) and omitted the cinnamon. I also used the Trader Joe's Rice Orzo Pilaf Mix for my pasta element. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing...

This was relatively easy for a weeknight dinner, and delicious as well! The bonus is that the meat, veggie, and starch are all in one "pot" and dinner is served!!
