I love the classic version of stuffed peppers but those sometimes take more than an hour to bake. I've taken all the flavors in my favorite stuffed pepper recipes and made it, well, UN Stuffed.

If you love stuffed peppers then you'll love this deconstructed version of them. It is super easy to make and packs a lot of flavor the whole family will enjoy. We used panko bread crumbs for the topping and it added a nice crunchy texture to this lovely dish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make UN Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Place ground beef in a large, oven-safe skillet, over medium-high heat. Cook until browned. Drain excess grease if needed (if beef is lean you can probably skip that step).
  3. Add onion, peppers and garlic to ground beef and cook until onion is just beginning to soften. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  4. Stir in rice, marinara and half the cheese. Remove from heat. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
  5. In a small bowl, toss the breadcrumbs with the olive oil and then sprinkle the mixture over the top of the beef mixture.
  6. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
  7. If desired, place under broiler for 2-3 minutes to get cheese all ooey gooey and browned. Enjoy! For more specifics visit foodyschmoodyblog.com/un-stuffed-pep...
