Making low-carb filled lasagna tips Thoughts on Pepper Stuffed Lasagna:

1.) To keep a shaky pepper from falling over: Cut a tiny flat piece from the bottom of the pepper before cooking to ensure it is flat. Don’t cut all the way through the peppers or the filling will pour out at the bottom (and that would be gross).

2.) Use a pepper core to simply remove the stems!

  • 4 various colored peppers
  • 1/2 cup fein gehackt gelbe Zwiebel
  • 3-4 g g g g g g g g g g g g g hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Ground beef, 1/2 pound (I use 85/15)
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage, ground (no added sugar)
  • 15 oz. diced tomatoes in a can
  • 1 teaspoon herbs from Italy
  • a half teaspoon of salt (plus a pinch or two)
  • a quarter teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Vollmilch-Ricotta-Käse (Vullmilch-Ricotta-Käse)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh basil (more for garnish, if desired)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, geriebener
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated


Using aluminum foil, cover a large baking sheet. Remove it from the equation.


Cut the peppers lengthwise in half. Remove the ribs and seeds with care. In a big pan, place the peppers cut side up. Fill the pan halfway with water, making sure the peppers are fully immersed. Cover and cook over high heat until the water begins to boil. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the peppers for five minutes, then drain. Make sure each pepper doesn’t have any extra water. Season the insides of the peppers with salt and put them aside to cool on the prepared baking sheet.


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 minutes, or until onion and garlic are tender.


Combine the ground beef, Italian sausage, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Fry the meat until it is completely done.


Toss the meat and sausage combination with the chopped tomatoes. Cover partially with a lid (to avoid splashing), reduce to a low heat, and cook for 15 minutes. Then take it out of the fire.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.


In a medium mixing dish, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, egg, and basil. Mix everything together until it’s perfectly smooth.


Assemble each pepper in the following manner: 1) Spread a tablespoon of beef sauce over the peppers’ bottoms. 2) Add a dollop of ricotta cheese on top. Spread it over the initial layer of sauce, fully covering it. 3) Finish with a tablespoon of sauce. Put it on; it’s best if it’s higher than the peppers’ sides. 4) Arrange the peppers on top of the mozzarella.


Bake for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven, or until the mozzarella cheese on top begins to brown.


Allow 10 minutes for cooling before serving.
