It all started when I ran out of Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese spread wedges. I usually like to spread that in jalapenos, peppers, etc. and bake them. So I had this bag of sweet mini peppers, with no LC Cheese. I did have fat free cream cheese though. So I started searching for healthy recipes with with that, and came across this one. Very tasty and looks nice on the plate too!
12-15 mini sweet peppers
1 c fat free cream cheese, softened
1 tsp onion flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 c chopped green onions
1/2 c part-skim shredded mozzarella.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Cut the mini peppers in half, and remove seeds & membrane. Leave the stems on to make it easier to pick these up. In a small bowl, add the remaining ingredients (except mozz) and stir until well blended. Spoon mixture evenly into pepper halves. Sprinkle mozzarella over each half. Place pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and bake 10-15 min. Then eat these creamy, cheesy things!

I made the delicious Cauliflower Fried Rice tonight, but we also added some chicken Will grilled. Yum!
