Stuffed Pasta Bell Peppers

Stuffed Pasta Bell peppers!

Delicious and beautiful stuffed Pasta bell peppers with cheesy pasta and chicken baked into the center. 

Whew! What a week this has been! We’ve had one of those crazy weeks where all of the stuff that you continually put off comes back to bite you in the behind. I blissfully procrastinated on school papers and presentations that I need to write. I just realized the other day that they are all coming due at once! Between that and caring for our baby girl…

My husband and I also run a small glass etching business. We have a little Etsy shop and we sell custom etched wineglasses, beer mugs, etc. Usually we do small orders like for a set of glasses. Wouldn’t you know, this time we were blessed with a bulk order for 100 glasses! My husband and I looked at each other and decided it was a simple weekend task. Normally that would have been okay; but now that we have a baby things take a little bit longer. There were many long nights that we worked on the glass, while jiggling our daughter on our knee.

Stuffed Pasta Bell Peppers Recipe:

So I needed a quick and easy dinner to whip up after that exhausting weekend! I love bell peppers and I love pasta so these seemed to be just the thing! I added in chicken to make it a bit more exciting and smoked gouda into the cheese line-up to give it an extra kick! Stuffed Pasta Bell Peppers taste outstanding with the Smoked Gouda!
