2 . Stuffed Pepper Casserole :

  • In order to make this stuffed pepper casserole, you won’t be stuffing any peppers; nonetheless, you will be able to savor the sweet and smokey mix of flavors that come from the bell peppers, fire-roasted tomatoes, smoked paprika, and ground beef.
  • Either the precooked rice that comes in the container or any leftover brown rice that you have on hand can be used. Use approximately one and a half cups of rice if you are using leftover rice.

 

3 . Fish Taco Bowls with Green Cabbage Slaw :

  • Several ingredients, including fresh salsa verde, green cabbage, and avocado, add to the beautiful green color of this fish taco dish that is both light and bright. We are big fans of the mild flavor and meaty texture of halibut, but you can substitute it with any other firm white fish such as mahi mahi or tilapia. We use cilantro as a garnish for this flavorful taco bowl
  • but, if you want to take it to the next level, you may choose toppings such as sprouts or watermelon radishes for an even more vibrant green color.

5 . Burrata Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes & Spinach :

  • Burrata cheese, a soft cow’s milk cheese that resembles fresh mozzarella but has a creamy interior that melts nicely, is featured in this scrumptious pasta recipe that is perfect for a weekday meal. If you like, you can use chopped fresh tomatoes that are ripe for the summer instead of cherry tomatoes.
  • In the event that they are plump and juicy, they will effectively impart flavor and moisture to the pasta, allowing you to conserve some of the pasta water that you would normally add. Garlic bread with a crust and a green salad on the side should be served alongside.
