HOW TO MAKE LASAGNA STUFFED BELL PEPPERS



  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut the tops of the pepper off (save for filling) and core and remove the seeds and membrane from the inside of the peppers.  

  • Rinse peppers with water and place upright in a 9" x 13" shallow baking dish sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray.  Generously salt and pepper the inside of the peppers.

  • Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom around the peppers.  Bake for 15 minutes.

  • While the peppers are cooking in the oven, start cooking the meat sauce.

  • Bring avocado oil to medium heat in a large skillet.  Chop the tops of the peppers that were set aside and add to the heat avocado oil.  Add the chopped onions and garlic.  Add the lean ground meat and saute.  Cook for 5 minutes.

  • Add the seasonings, red pepper flakes, and two tablespoons of parsley, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Add the marinara sauce and cook for another 5 minutes.

  • In a small bowl combine ricotta, parmesan, egg, and 3 tablespoons of parsley.

  • As soon as the peppers have been cooked for 15 minutes remove them from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

  • Layer 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture on the bottom of each 6 pepper.  Add 2-3 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture on top of the meat sauce.  Add another layer of the meat sauce. 

  • Cover the pepper with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  

  • Remove the foil and top each pepper with the mozzarella cheese.  Bake uncovered for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.  Garnish with the remainder of the chopped parsley.

  1. This sounds fabulous! Can't wait to try! Just wanted to mention that an egg is not listed in the ingredient list even though it is listed to mix in with the ricotta filling. Keep posting your great recipes!
