INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb Ground Beef (80% Lean / 20% Fat)
  • 1 cup Ricotta Cheese (Whole Milk)
  • 1 cup, shredded Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup Tomato Sauce (Canned)
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 4 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Green Peppers

DIRECTIONS


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In large bowl, mix ground beef, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella, half the tomato sauce, salt and pepper until well combined.
  3. Slice the tops off peppers and remove seeds and ribs. With a small knife, cut a few small slits in the bottom of each pepper (to drain liquid released by the beef as it cooks).
  4. Stuff the peppers with the meat mixture and place, open side up, in a baking dish that holds the peppers snugly; pour remaining sauce in bottom of the dish. Top with remaining mozzarella.
  5. Mist a large piece of aluminum foil with olive oil cooking spray. Place sprayed side down over peppers. Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 50 minutes more, or until meat is cooked through and cheese has browned. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving.

Cooking Tip

Try using red, yellow, or orange bell peppers along with the green for a more colorful presentation!
