!LASAGNA-STUFFED PEPPERS
Servings: 4

INGREDIENTS
4 bell peppers, various colors
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
½ pound ground beef
½ pound sweet Italian sausage
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 28-ounce can tomato sauce
15 ounces whole milk ricotta
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
½ cup fresh basil, chopped
1 egg
4-5 cooked lasagna noodles, quartered
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 350˚F/180˚C.
Cut the top off of each pepper and remove the seeds. Transfer to a square baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, to soften.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pot, or dutch oven, over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook until softened.
Add the ground beef, sausage, salt, and pepper. Cook until the meat has browned on all sides.
Add the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Bring the mixture to a light simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine ricotta, parmesan, basil, and egg. Mix together with a fork, set aside.
Remove the peppers from the oven, drain any excess water that accumulated inside.
Assemble the lasagna in each pepper. Alternate 2 tablespoons of sauce, 1 lasagna noodle, 2 tablespoons ricotta mixture, and 1 lasagna noodle until the peppers are full. Top with mozzarella cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.
Rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Enjoy

  1. Those look amazing. However, I wouldn’t cut into the peppers with a knife like the person in the video did.  I would pick one up like it’s a bowl and then start eating it.

  2. you know what drives me crazy? the Italians bashing these Italian inspired dishes… “Italian’s don’t cook like this”, honey, Italy is a country with many different styles of cooking… A Carolinian person for example, doesn’t cook their BBQ the same way as someone from Tennessee… My Godparents are Italian, and I have also been to Italy and traveled around the country. Different regions cook differently… The only thing consistent around there was the amazing coffee and homemade mozzarella… That being said, I loved almost every dish I came across there… except the melon with pancetta appetizer thing… strange combo…

  3. I’m Australian and we don’t call them peppers, we call them capsicum like the rest of the world, the only thing that we could probably call a pepper is chilli but it already has quite a good name

  4. I made them… I have enough sauce and ricotta mix left to do this like 5 more times 😱 1/4 of the recommended sauce ingredients and 1/2 the ricotta ingredients would be enough TBH. also, add your own seasonings!!! it was very bland before I added my own.

  5. I just made these stuffed peppers. Had enough cheese filling and meat sauce for 12 peppers. They were good but I wish the peppers would’ve been softer.
