Lasagna Stuffed Peppers

With no noodles this recipe is great for South Beach Phase 1.



  1. Place peppers in a large baking pan at least 9x13". Sprinkle inside of peppers with salt. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. Brown the ground beef, garlic, mushrooms, salt, pepper and half the garlic powder.
  3. Drain fat, then stir in spaghetti sauce and adjust seasoning as needed.
  4. Combine the ricotta cheese, egg and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Season with salt, pepper and remaining garlic powder.
  5. Divide ricotta mixture between the pepper halves. Top ricotta mixture with meat and sauce.
  6. Mound the mozzarella cheese over the top of each pepper. Sprinkle with the 1/4 cup of parmesan.
  7. Bake at 350º F for 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned. The peppers will have a little crunch to them still.

Easy to make. I used red peppers from the local farmer's market and cremini mushrooms. It was very good.
