    Adapted from a recipe by KASM75 at A little spicy, a little creamy. Substitute orzo for the rice, or leave out the rice and the bell peppers and use as pasta sauce.

      I set out to find a recipe to use up an abundance of red peppers I had in the fridge and this is one that I chose. I followed the instructions exactly but substituted a few items (turkey for beef, fat-free half-and-half for cream, brown rice for white rice and shredded Parmesan for the grated stuff). The entire family gave it great reviews across the board. I like the little kick that the red pepper flakes add to the sauce and I will be adding them to my usual recipe from now on. I am also a fan of the huge amount of hidden veggies in this recipe and I think I will double the amount of carrots and possibly add some grated zucchini next time I make it. The depth of the sauce is great and all of the elements (spicy, sweet, savory, creamy) balance out wonderfully. I'm not sure if it was the Parmesan pair with the marinara, but my son and husband said that the taste reminded them of Pizza Hut pizza. All in all, it was an excellent recipe and I will absolutely make it again. (Made for Bargain Basement tag)
