How To Make stuffed bell peppers with mac & cheese

  • 1
    NOTE: Make your favorite mac & cheese recipe. There are so many versions I did not feel the need to write one down. I like to play with my mac & cheese and try new things. Adding Pico de Gallo would be good. Today I used Pico Queso Cheese and added some Smokehouse Maple seasoning by McCormick. Adding cooked, crumbled bacon on top would be delicious as well.

    Use mini pasta such as mini shells or elbow. Any type of small shaped pasta will work. If using regular size bell peppers you could use a larger pasta.

    I found some mini bell peppers, but you could use regular sized ones, or small regular ones. You could cut it in half after cooking to make two servings. The ones I bought were single serving size. Slice off the top of the pepper and remove veins and seeds.

    Once you have your mac & cheese ready to eat, gently stuff it inside your pepper. Place the top back on peppers and grill for 20-30 min. Time will depend on the heat of your grill. Use a wire rack or grilling pan.
