Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I hardly ever make stuffed peppers but I saw some really nice peppers at the market and thought I would make them.


To 2 pounds of ground meat, I added a diced medium onion and lots of diced garlic. Add 1 cup of cooked rice ( I used brown) and 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese.


Add salt and pepper and diced parsley. Mix in 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese and a log of goat cheese. Mix this together and fry a small piece and taste for seasoning. Adjust accordingly.


I used Cubanelle and Poblano peppers. The Poblanos are a bit spicy.


Halve the peppers and remove the veins and seeds. Stuff each pepper with the meat filling.


Drizzle with olive oil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until they are cooked through.


The finished Poblanos.


The cubanelles........Yum!


Drain the juice from the peppers and add it to a can of crushed tomatoes in a skillet. Add some grated cheese, I used 1/2 cup of Asiago.


Mix the tomato sauce into a pound of boiled spaghetti.


Serve one of each pepper on top of a bed of the spaghetti.


Sprinkle with a bit of Parmesan cheese.


Mangia!

Blogger is still acting goofy. Even though I checked back several times yesterday, I didn't get this post until this morning, on the second time of checking in!

But it was well worth the wait! I love your spin on stuffed peppers, and am going to have to give them a try!

My hubby likes to make stuffed green chili peppers, and it seems to me that the main ingredient is always every last scrap of cheese in the refrigerator... But they are a huge hit with kids and adults alike...

I love stuffed peppers (and tomatoes!) I'm not a green pepper fan, but red, orange, yellow, purple or brown are all yummy. These look so great!

I make stuffed peppers for the hubby when they come in in the garden. He loves them. I can't eat them - I am severely allergic.

And I thought stuffed pepper was a starter.

I do like stuffed peppers but I usually use the bigger paprika's instead. A bit tame in taste perhaps to be honest :-)

Have a great day!

Delightful! I love the idea of serving them on a bed of spaghetti.

What a great idea! I never thought to stuff the poblano's with the stuffing I use for green peppers! I think everyone will like this better since my adult sons eat the filling and toss the green pepper!

I love spaghetti since I was a child. My mom always cooks me, my brothers and my sister whenever it's our birthday or other special occasions that needs celebrating. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Now I can cook for my mom. I'll definitely make this before I get my Food Handler Certification.
