Ingredients

  • Meat Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed

  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced

  • 1/2 lb . ground pork, 230 grams

  • 6 oz can tomato sauce, 170 grams

  • 6 oz can crushed tomatoes, 170 grams

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • small handful of basil, finely chopped

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional

  • Peppers
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, 55 grams, grated

  • 5 large bell peppers

  • 1 cup ricotta Cheese, 250 grams

  • 1 cup mozzarella Cheese, 113 grams, shredded

Directions

  • For the Meat Sauce
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the diced onions and cook a few minutes until onions become translucent. Add the garlic and cook until for a couple of minutes, stirring so that the garlic doesn’t burn.
  • Add in ground pork and cook until no longer pink.
  • Add in tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15-20 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat to cool.
  • For the Peppers
  • While the meat sauce is thicken begin working on the peppers. Preheat oven to 400°/200°C.
  • Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and remove ribs and seeds. Place pepper halves on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes on the middle rack.
  • Remove peppers from oven. Peppers have a high water content so if you find that there is a little water on sitting inside the peppers after you remove them from the oven, just drain the water and blot the insides with a paper towel.
  • Sprinkle a little sea salt inside each pepper before adding the meat filling to absorb and excess moisture. Fill each pepper with ¼ cup tomato meat sauce.
  • Spoon 2 tablespoons of ricotta cheese on top of the meat sauce in each pepper cup. Pour an additional 1-2 tablespoons meat sauce on top of the ricotta cheese.
  • Top each pepper with 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese. Bake in the middle of your oven for 12 minutes.
  • Remove peppers from oven. Top each pepper with about 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning. Bake for an 5 additional minutes on top rack or until the cheese is golden.
