Guest Post: Green Stuffed Peppers with Hot Italian Sausage

I am pleased to present my first guest post! And who better to be a guest blogger than my cooking inspiration, my mom. She’s a fantastic cook! Although for awhile I’m sure she thought I would never pick up cooking and survive off of grilled cheese sandwiches. It was only a matter of time though so thanks Mom!

I can always tell when fall is in the air because I crave hot soups and stuffed green peppers! Well, the stuffed green peppers won out this time. I decided to try making them a new way using hot Italian sausage.

Ingredients
4 green peppers
1 pound of hot Italian sausage
1 egg
1 jar of marinara sauce or a sauce of your choosing
3/4 cup of grated Romano cheese
1/4 cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1-2 cloves of garlic minced

Instructions 

1. Cut the tops off of the green peppers and remove seeds and ribbing.

9. Bake the peppers uncovered at 375° for 55 minutes. Time may vary depending on your oven. Make sure the sausage is completely cooked.

10. Pour 1 to 1/2 cups of marinara sauce over the peppers, sprinkle with Romano cheese and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
