How to Make It

Step 1

Set the oven to 400°F.  Cut the tops off the peppers.  Discard the stems, core and seeds.  Chop the tops and reserve.  Place the peppers in an 8x8x2-inch baking dish.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onion, sausage, garlic and reserved chopped pepper tops and cook for 5 minutes or until the sausage is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.

Step 3

Increase the heat to high.  Add the broth and farro to the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the kale.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the kale and farro are tender and the liquid is absorbed.  Remove the the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the panko and cheese.  Spoon the farro mixture into the peppers.  Loosely cover the baking dish with foil.

Step 5

Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender.

Recipe Tips

  • Time Saving Tip: You can substitute fully-cooked sweet Italian chicken sausage, diced, for the uncooked pork sausage in this recipe.  Omit the oil.  Stir the onion, fully-cooked chicken sausage, garlic and reserved chopped pepper tops in a 12-inch skillet, then proceed as directed in Step 3.
  • Prep Ahead Meal: You can prep the peppers and cook the filling for this dish up to 3 days ahead of time.  Just store the cut peppers and the cooled filling mixture (it’s really important that you cool it completely before you put it in the fridge) in gallon-sized resealable bags in the refrigerator.  For dinner, all you have to do is fill the peppers and bake!
