How to make lasagna stuffed peppers

Print this recipe
This delicious recipe combines two Italian-American comfort food classics: stuffed peppers and lasagna. Bell peppers are stuffed with a cheesy combo of ricotta and mozzarella along with a favorite pasta sauce. Rich and flavorful, these stuffed peppers will soon become a family classic.
But the best part may well be how crowd-pleasing this recipe is. Devoid of noodles, it's gluten-free. In addition, although you could easily sub in your favorite jarred bolognese sauce for the marinara, the recipe is vegetarian, too. Feel free to prep these ahead and store them in the fridge: You can bake them just before serving for a no-fuss dinner.
