I have a fresh twist on a house favorite today: Italian Stuffed Peppers. Sweet bell peppers stuffed with a savory blend of ground chicken or turkey, Italian herbs and cheeses, and the whole grain of your choice, each stuffed pepper is its own tidy and complete healthy dinner package.
A few weeks ago, I baked Mexican Stuffed Peppers, and they reminded me of just how fantastic stuffed peppers are as their own mini recipe genre.
It had been ages since I cooked them, likely since these Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Stuffed Peppers or these Crock Pot Stuffed Peppers made their appearances more than three (!!) years ago. They were so easy and tasty, I promised myself I wouldn’t wait that long to cook stuffed peppers again.
And, here we are! Sweet (or spicy) Italian stuffed peppers for your healthy eating and meal prep pleasure.
I started with my tried-and-true stuffed pepper base recipe, then gave it an Italian twist. PERFECTION.
Italian flavors and red bell peppers are a natural match. By the time you shower on the fresh basil and a generous handful of Mozzarella and Parm, this might be your favorite stuffed pepper recipe yet!
