How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.

Step 2

Stir the onion and oregano in the skillet and cook until the onion is tender.  Stir in the cheese.

Step 3

Arrange the pepper halves, cut-side up, in a 3-quart shallow baking dish.  Spoon the sausage mixture into the pepper halves.   Pour the sauce over the filled pepper halves.  Cover the baking dish.

Step 4

Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender.

Recipe Tips

  • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Cook the sausage mixture and cool completely.  Assemble the stuffed peppers as directed, wrap tightly and freeze.  From frozen, bake, covered, 1 hr. 10 min. or until peppers are tender.  Or thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bake, covered, 45 min. or until peppers are tender.

    easy healthy meal

    I am taking carbs out of my diet to help loose weight, and this was a great healthy meal. I used italian turkey instead of sausage, and mixed the sauce in with the meat and onions and put some fat free mozzarella on top. I don't really like green peppers too much but this was tasty.

    Easy meal

    I added some chopped spinach to the mix. Was not sure from the recipe when and where to add the cheese though. I just mixed some shereded Mexican blend with the meat mixture.

    Sausage-Stuffed Green Peppers

    Really good, made this a couple times. Last night I added a small can of sliced black olives to the sausage and made orzo pasta with butter and garlic to go with.
