4 large bell pepper (red, yellow or orange)
1 kg ground beef
1 ½ tsp creole seasoning
¼ cup bread crumbs
¼ cup shredded parmesan
Pinch red pepper flakes
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese blend
½ can Goody sieved tomatoes
½ Jar Goody Marinara pasta sauce
1.Prepare peppers by slicing off a little of the top and bottom of each pepper. Do not discard these. Cut out ribs and seeds. Slice into 3 thick rings and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment for easy clean up. Dice up remaining parts of peppers to use in meat mixture.
2.Prepare meatloaf mix: Mix ground beef with seasoning, bread crumbs, egg, Parmesan, red pepper flakes, garlic, and remaining diced peppers until combined.
3.Stuff each pepper with meat mixture leaving a dome of the mixture on top of each pepper.
4.Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe pot over medium-high heat. Brown each stuffed pepper ring for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
5.Once, browned on each side, mix crushed tomatoes and Marinara sauce and pour over the stuffed pepper rings.
6.Bake at 180 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. Top with cheese and bake for 5 more minutes. Top with fresh parsley and serve.
