Lasagna Stuffed Peppers

My mom makes the best lasagna in the whole world, seriously! If you're like me, you love lasagna but not the carbs! Problem solved! I just substituted the noodles for healthy bell peppers. Totally clean eating friendly too! If you have a favorite recipe for lasagna you can use this concept with your recipe just use everything you normally would except for the noodles and pile it on top of half of a pepper and bake.

You will need:
3 Bell peppers, any color
1 lb lean ground beef of ground turkey cooked and drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 1/2 cup reduced fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Sea salt
Italian seasoning
Shredded mozzarella to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350
Cut bell peppers in half getting all the seeds out and place in greased baking dish
In large bowl mix meat, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste
In separate bowl mix cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and spices (season as desired)
Spoon a spoonful of cheese mixture into bell peppers, follow by meat mixture and top with mozzarella cheese
Bake for 20-25 min

Happy cooking!
Love, T
