Try these lasagna stuffed bell peppers for a twist on the original comfort food you love to bake in the oven but filled with lots of cheese.
So we really like stuffed bell peppers in this house, but also love thinking outside of the box too. So since we love lasagna too it just made sense to try and combine the two, and might I say these lasagna stuffed bell peppers came out amazing!!
Lasagna Stuffed Peppers
If you’ve only cooked lasagna in the oven you’re missing out! We cook lasagna in the crockpot all the time and it is SO much easier because there is NO boiling required!
- These lasagna bell peppers require you to boil noodles but smaller ones so you don’t have to worry ripping the long lasagna noodles.
- Burning your hands transferring them to a baking pan and they cook faster since they are already portioned out….and yes even my kids love these.
I’m sure you know, but this is how to cut bell peppers if you need some tips.
First you will cut the top off your bell peppers. Remove the seeds and cut them in half so they become cups. Then boil a pot of water and once it boils submerge them and blanche them for about 10 minutes. This will take some of the bitterness out of them and soften them up.
Stuffed Peppers with Noodles
I cook my ground beef and noodles at the same time I am blanching my bell peppers. Once your meat and farfalle noodles are done and peppers are blanched you will mix your filling. Start to fill your lasagna bell peppers now!
