Recipe by JackieOhNo
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 6 peppers




  • Slice tops off peppers, seed and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, slowly heat olive oil in large Dutch oven, then add onion and let brown.
  • While onion browns, mix together ground meat, salt and pepper to taste, garlic, parsley, basil, cheese, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Mix lightly; do not overwork. Divide meat mixture into six portions, gently roll and stuff into peppers.
  • When onion is brown, add peppers and brown on all sides. After browning, stand peppers upright and pour marinara sauce over them. Simmer for 1 hour on the stove top. When almost done, remove lid and cut each pepper in half lengthwise, then continue cooking until done.
  • Serve each pepper with some sauce spooned on top and sprinkled with some grated cheese.
