Stuffed Green Peppers

Most recipes include a filler like rice, bread crumbs, or oatmeal.  I prefer to make mine without any filler.


1 lb. ground buffalo
(You can use ground beef or turkey)                         
1/2 c. chopped red onion  
1/2 c. chopped Vidalia onion
4 cloves chopped fresh garlic
1/3 c. loosely packed chopped fresh basil
2 Tb. dried oregano
2 Tb. dried basil
1 Tb. Italian seasoning
1 Tb. dried shallots
1 Tb. dried leeks
Lg. Jar of favorite marinara sauce (I like Rao's Homemade)
1 small can tomato paste
Little Olive Oil
6 Green Bell Peppers
6 slices mozzarella cheese


Cook the onions and garlic in olive oil until tender.  Add the ground buffalo and simmer until cooked thoroughly. Add all of the herbs and spices.  Finally add the tomato paste and marinara. 

Cut off the tops of the Green Bell Peppers and clean out the inside of all membranes and seeds.  Stuff the peppers with the meat mixture and put in the oven on 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes.

Top each pepper with a slice of Mozzarella and turn oven to broil just long enough to melt and slightly brown the cheese.

Serve with your favorite salad and enjoy!

It is so very easy and something different. I forget sometimes all the wonderful recipes I have used over the years and end up having the same types of things over and over again. Glad I remembered this one!
