SAUSAGE STUFFED PEPPERS

 

  • Cooking Time: 40
  • Servings: 4-6
  • Preparation Time: 20

Ingredients

  • 6 medium green bell peppers
  • 1 lb bulk sweet italian sausage
  • 1 Medium onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregeno leaves, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded mozarella cheese, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 Cups Pasta sauce (I used Hunt's Traditional)
  • 2 Tbsp breadcrumbs

Directions

  • Begin to cook sausage in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until browned.
  • Meanwhile, remove the tops of each pepper, dice up the flesh from the tops of the peppers, removing the seeds and stem.
  • Boil a large pot of water and place whole peppers in the boiling water. Cover and let boil for 5 minutes. Place peppers in a casserole dish with 1 cup water on the bottom of the dish.
  • Once sausage is browned, add onions, diced pepper and oregeno. Cook until onions become translucent. Drain off fat. Stir in cheese.
  • Fill peppers with sausage mixture. Pour pasta sauce over peppers evenly. Sprinkle each pepper with breadcrumbs and place in oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with additional mozarella and continue to bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese melts slightly.

Notes

Instead of the traditional ground beef, I decided to try sausage for a new flavor.
