Weeknight Dinners

This week, we've tested a few new recipes, which have been really great! Tyler has been so wonderful and has agreed to do most of the cooking this week as my schedule at work hasn't been cooperating :( I did manage to make dinner Monday night and made up a new stuffed pepper recipe that was delicious...definitely give it a try!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers
Ingredients:
  • 2 peppers (I used red and yellow peppers)
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil + a drizzle for baking
  • 10 asparagus spears chopped (I used 5 spears and wish I had doubled the amount.)
  • 2 minced garlic gloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to broil. 
  2. Cut the peppers in half and scoop out any seeds. Drizzle olive oil and broil in oven for 5-6 minutes to soften peppers.Remove peppers from the oven and let them cool.
  3. Make filling: In a frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic gloves, asparagus, and rosemary and cook for 5 minutes until asparagus is softened. Remove pan from heat and let the filling cool.
  4. In a small bowl, mix filling with goat cheese and stir. Stuff the peppers with goat cheese filling and drizzle olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. 
  5. Place the peppers back in the oven and cook for 5 minutes.Turn oven down to 400 degrees and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
For dinner Tuesday night, Tyler made Pesto Pasta with Chicken Apple Sausages and Roasted Brussels Sprouts. He modified the recipe slightly by cooking everything on the stove and not in the oven. This pasta dish was delicious!

For dinner tonight, Tyler made Smoky Spice Rubbed Salmon with Black Bean Corn Salad. The salmon was perfectly crisp and the black bean and corn salad was the perfect side dish. If you like salmon, you will definitely like this recipe!
