Stuffed Green Peppers

Received recipe a few years back from an old friend of mine. I was not a fan of green peppers, but she won me over with the stuffed ones! She would make them in a skillet, adding tomato sauce in the bottom of a large skillet, and covering it with a top. I found it easier to bake them. I myself added the ricotta and parmesan cheese to the recipe, because I found I liked it a little creamy and cheesier. I love the recipe and it's become one of my staples :)

Ingredients

  • 3-4
    green peppers
  • 1 can(s)
    tomato sauce
  • 1 lb
    ground beef
  • 1
    onion (or use onion powder)
  • 1-3 Tbsp
    ricotta cheese (you can eyeball this, if you think it is too much)
  • 1
    handful of parmesan cheese
  • ·
    italian seasoning

How to Make Stuffed Green Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut and scoop out seeds of the peppers and boil them until soft. If using onion, chop onion into fine pieces. Brown the hamburger meat, adding onion (or onion powder), Italian seasoning (I used Oregano, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme and Marjoram), and salt and pepper. Cook until meat is brown and onions are translucent.
  2. Add in tomato sauce, ricotta, and parmesan cheese**.

    (Note: WIth the Ricotta and Parmesan, I eyeballed it. You can add as much as you like, depending on how creamy/cheesy you want your mix to be. There isn't an exact amount to this.) Cook together until heated throughly.
  3. Stuff peppers with mixture. (There may be some left over - you can either use this as a side dish, or freeze it to add to more peppers later, depending on how much you have left.)

    Top peppers with mozzarella cheese and cook at 400 for 15 minutes, or until cheese is brown on top. Enjoy!

    (Chef's Note: When my friend made this, she would put some tomato sauce with Italian seasonings in the bottom of her pan while cooking the peppers, and she used this for sauce. I've never felt that it needed any extra sauce, but if this is something you might enjoy, go for it!)
