Lynda's Stuffed Jalapenos

1 lb ground sausage (hot if ya like!)
22 jalapeños
8 oz block cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 425. Cook sausage until browned. Set aside. Mix cream cheese with Parmesan cheese. Add cooked sausage and mix well. Rinse jalapeños. Cut each jalapeño lengthwise and remove seeds. Stuff jalapeños with sausage mixture. Cook for 20 minutes until tops are golden brown (cook on a large baking pan).

Beth's Beautiful Caprese

With decorative toothpicks, combine 1 each: grape tomato, small fresh basil leaf, cooked rainbow tortellini, marinated mozzarella pearls. Just before serving, drizzle with balsamic glaze (balsamic vinegar will work). You can skip the pasta for a lighter version. Enjoy!
