Stuffed Peppers

Previously, I have talked about my meat sauce that I use in just about anything Italian based. In this particular recipe, it is mixed with rice and stuffed into peppers before being baked. This really doesn’t take long to make, and is a good way to use any leftover sauce from another recipe.

20170130_170538_resizedWhat you’ll need:

  • 1/2 batch of meat sauce- find the recipe here: Meat Sauce
  • 6 servings of rice
  • 12 green bell peppers, hollowed out
  • enough cheese substitute to garnish each pepper (around 2 cups)


(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

(2) Simmer meat sauce while you hollow out bell peppers.

(4) Stuff equal amounts of rice mixture into bell peppers and garnish with cheese. Place on foil lined pan.

Let cool and enjoy.

As a side note: My three year old is obsessed with Halloween- dressing up and trick-or-treating is his favorite thing in the world. Because of this, we go all out on dinner during the month of October (and random times throughout the year as well). If you are looking for something a little more fun and kid friendly to do with these, try swapping out green bell peppers for orange ones and make a jack-o-lantern- you won’t be disappointed.
