Ingredients

2 large
yellow bell peppers
1/2 c
fresh spinach
1/2 c
part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 c
fresh parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp
minced fresh garlic
3 Tbsp
diced fresh onion
2 slice
bacon, cooked & crumbled (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425.
2
In a small skillet, add the spinach with 1/4 cup water and cover. Cook on medium-high heat until spinach has wilted. Drain well and squeeze to remove any excess water. Set aside.
3
While the spinach is wilting, slice peppers into quarters, discarding seeds and carefully removing any membrane with a sharp knife. Place cut side up on baking sheet.
4
Combine the ricotta and Parmesan cheeses in a medium sized bowl. Add the onion, garlic and spinach. Combine well. If you opted for the bacon, add it to the cheese mixture and combine.
5
Stuff peppers with cheese mixture and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
