DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the three cheeses in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Prepare the peppers by cutting off tops and carefully scraping out the seeds with a knife (try not to poke holes in the peppers).
  • Stuff each pepper with the cheese mixture, using the end of a spoon or your finger to pack the cheeses tightly.
  • After all the peppers are stuffed, pour a small amount of the sauce into a baking dish (I use a 9"x9" dish), coating the bottom.
  • Arrange the stuffed peppers into a single layer in the bottom of the dish (it's OK to lay a few on top if you run out of room in the dish).
  • If you had any remaining cheese mixture left, you may sprinkle it on top of the peppers now or simply freeze it for next time.
  • Pour the remaining spaghetti sauce on top of the peppers, covering them completely.
  • Bake, covered, for 30-40 minutes, or until peppers are soft and sauce is nice and bubbly (it may take longer if the peppers have thick flesh).
  • Serve with spaghetti or other pasta.
  • NOTE: Measurements for the cheeses are approximate; you may adjust the amounts and types of cheeses to your own taste.
