Italian Sunburger Stuffed Peppers

We recieved a HUGE bag of small sweet peppers in our Bountiful Basket a few weeks back and I needed to create a recipe to use them before they went bad. I love eating salads and sweet peppers are absolutely delicious in a salad but I couldn't eat them fast enough. This amazing Italian stuffed pepper recipe used up the rest of the sweet peppers and it was delicious!

My husband is a die hard pasta and Italian food fan and I didn't know if I could sneak this stuffed pepper recipe by him.  He isn't the biggest fan of vegetables, although he eats them anyway because they are in everything I make.  He is my taste tester, I know if he likes it, most people will like it too.  He gave this stuffed pepper recipe a BIG thumbs up. It is quite simple to put together and tastes amazing!  

I took two photos of the Italian stuffed peppers to show how I served them.  I think it is easier to eat stuffed peppers sliced and broken up so before I served them I used a serrated knife to cut the peppers. 

This stuffed pepper recipe serves 4

12 small sweet peppers
1 1/2 c. cheese sauce
1/4 c. onion
1/3 c. celery
1/2 Tb. parsley
1 Tb. italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. ground almonds
1 Tb. nutritional yeast
2 c. marinara sauce
2 crumbled sunburgers

Combine the sunburgers, onion, celery, seasonings and almonds in a bowl. Mix well. Cut the top off the peppers and stuff with the sunburger mixture. Place in baking dish, pour marinara on top and then the cheese sauce. Bake 350 for 25 minutes.

I *love* stuffed peppers and if you got your die-hard pasta fan of a husband to approve, then I know these must be good.

On a side note, peppers tend to freeze rather well, so if you find yourself with extras in the future, don't be afraid to clean them up, slice 'em, chop 'em, or whatever, and toss them into the freezer. It's great for having fillers for fajitas or stir fries in a pinch. :)

these look so good.. I'm going to have to try this recipe this summer... I will have to use hamburger as DH won't go vegan at all... maybe I'll do half vegan half meat.
