Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jar pasta sauce
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 3 bell peppers any colour
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Fresh parsley or basil, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Slice peppers in half and scoop out seeds/white piths. Drizzle peppers with a bit of olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Bake 10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over med-high heat. Add ground beef, breaking up with a spoon.
  • Once beef is browned, add onion and garlic, sauteeing for another 5 minutes. Stir in pasta sauce and salt & pepper, bringing to a boil. Stir in spinach, then remove from heat.
  • Add beef mixture to each pepper, filling up about halfway. Spread with a layer of ricotta cheese (about 2 tbsp), then finish with more beef mixture. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake peppers for another 12-15 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove from oven, garnish with fresh herbs if desired, then serve and enjoy!

Notes

NOTE: One serving is half a pepper and is noted in the nutritional values. One half may not seem like a lot but it's filled with 28g of protein! I suggest serving with a side salad for a complete meal.
