An abundent harvest- Quick and easy stuffed peppers

This one is so easy and quick.  Peppers stuffed with sausage and rice and then mirowaved and on the table in 40 minutes.    I found this recipe years ago when our local Wegmans would do little cards featuring a couple of recipes.  Now it is a quarterly magazine featuring a variety of items found and sampled when you visit the store.  Thank god I kept this recipe card because I cannot find this recipe anywhere on their website.

Italian-Style Stuffed Peppers
Serves 4- 5 
3 Large bell peppers, any color halved lengthwise and seeded
1 lb Poultry Italian sausage, casing removed
1 cup of rice (instant)
1 jar (26 oz.) Italian Sausage Sauce
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 egg
2 Tblsp chopped fresh oregano
1/2 cup Pecorino Romano grated cheese
Mix sausage with rice, 1 cup sauce, onion, egg and oregano.
Stuff peppers with sausage mixture.  Place peppers, skin side down in a microwave dish. Pour remaining sauce over peppers.  Microwave, covered on High for 20 minutes.  Uncover, sprinkle peppers with cheese, recover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving. 
  (Note – I just cut the tops off the peppers and stood them up in the dish.)
