My guess... Just about anything... Decked out stuffing, Decked out Spaghetti or Goulash. The immagination can go a long ways.

I use mild Italian sausage, enhanced with some bread crumbs, egg, milk, fresh ground pepper, Worchestershire, and a little dijon mustard...I don't measure. You can also stuff them with a mess of seasoned seasonal veggies topped with mozzarella cheese for a meatless meal.

There was a recent thread re stuffed peppers here:

http://www.netcookingtalk.com/forums...hlight=peppers

Here are the Lasagna stuffed peppers:

http://www.netcookingtalk.com/forums...11&postcount=6

Greek Stuffed Peppers
4 servings

  • 4 yellow, orange and/or red bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat orzo
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 ounces baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, (not oil-packed), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar, or red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Halve peppers lengthwise through the stems, leaving the stems attached. Remove the seeds and white membrane. Place the peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish. Add 1/2 inch water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool slightly, drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add orzo and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Mash chickpeas into a chunky paste with a fork, leaving some whole.
  4. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and oregano and cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in the orzo, chickpeas, 1/2 cup feta, tomatoes, vinegar and salt; cook until heated though, about 1 minute. Divide the filling among the pepper halves and sprinkle each pepper with some of the remaining 1/4 cup feta.

If you're in a festive mood - Jack-o-lantern stuffed peppers. lol

If I make a meat-based stuffed pepper, sometimes I accompany it w/ a mac 'n cheese-type stuffed pepper, & top it off with french fried onions.

How about mexican style? Ground meat with Ortega diced green chilis, cumin, oregano, tomato, and topped with cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack.

You could use any color pepper you like with this dish. I prefer red. This recipe is from the Progresso recipe book.

SAUSAGE and LENTIL STUFFED PEPPERS


6 Medium red bell peppers
1 Pound bulk Italian sausage (I like sweet hot Italian sausage)
½ Cup chopped onion
1 Can (10 1/2 ounces) PROGRESSO lentil soup
1 Cup cooked rice
¾ Cup PROGRESSO Italian style bread crumbs, divided usage
2 Tablespoons PROGRESSO grated parmesan cheese, divided usage
3 Tablespoons butter, melted





1. Preheat oven to 350 f.
2. Fill large saucepan half-full with water; bring to boil. Cut peppers lengthwise; and remove seeds. Place peppers in water. Boils 3 minutes; and drain.
3. In large skillet, brown sausage and onion; drain. Stir in soup, rice, ½ cup bread crumbs and 1-tablespoon parmesan cheese.
4. Fill peppers with sausage mixture; place in large shallow baking dish. Cover with foil.
5. Bake 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove foil.
In small bowl, combine butter, remaining 1/4- cup bread crumbs and remaining 1- tablespoon parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over peppers. Bake uncovered 5 minutes

How about a stuffing mixture that you would stuff a turkey with?

I like a sage sausage-bread-celery-onion stuffing, but you could use a cornbread stuffing, or oyster stuffing (yuck) or whatever stuffing/dressing you love on Thanksgiving!

I had a big bowl of sloppy joes left, added cooked Mahatma instant rice, extra catchup, stuffed into par boiled green peppers, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. These went into the crock pot, on high, and hope they are done by dinner time. If not I'll finish them off in the microwave.
