I love sweet peppers and while I was wandering around the produce section of my grocery store I came across a bag of Mini Sweet Peppers. Now, to be honest , I have to say I bought mostly, because I thought they were so cute!
To give you an idea of how small they are compared to regular peppers, I placed one in a teaspoon.
Now I had to figure out what I would with them...finally, I decided to stuffed them!
Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers
1 bag mini sweet peppers
1 8oz ricotta
2 heaping tbsp parmigiana cheese
6oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 lb sweet sausage
dizzle of olive oil
Preheat oven to 400.
Cut top off and clean out each pepper of seeds. Lay out on cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil. Cook sausage, breaking it up into little pieces. Drain and pat with paper towel to soak up extra grease.
Combine all ingredients and stuff into each pepper. (I divided all ingredients except sausage and stuffed half of the peppers with only the cheeses and the other half with cheeses and sausage.)
Place into oven for 30 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!!
