Step 1

1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a medium skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and 2 garlic cloves (minced) and cook until softened. Add the ground beef and cook until browned; season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with 1 cup Parmesan and the parsley.
3. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs with 1 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 garlic clove (minced), and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
4. Stand the bell peppers upright in a baking dish. Stuff each pepper with one quarter of the potato mixture, then one quarter of the meat mixture. Top the stuffed peppers with the garlicky bread crumbs and the bell pepper caps. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast the stuffed peppers until tender, about 30 minutes.
