Ingredients

  • 1

    pound ground beef

  • 1

    cup ricotta cheese

  • 1

    cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided

  • 1

    cup low-carbohydrate tomato sauce (such as Rao)

  • 3/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix ground beef, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella, salt, pepper and half the tomato sauce until well combined. Slice top off peppers and remove seeds and ribs. With a small knife, cut a few small slits in the bottom of each pepper (to drain liquid released by the beef as it cooks). Select a baking dish that will hold the peppers snugly; pour remaining sauce in bottom of the dish. Arrange peppers open side up and stuff with meat mixture. Top with remaining mozzarella. Spray a large piece of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place sprayed side down over peppers. Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 50 minutes more, or until meat is cooked through and cheese has browned. This recipe yields 4 servings.
