Tastes like stuffed bell peppers, but far less trouble to make. This can be used as a main or side dish.


  • 5 -6 medium to large bell peppers cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 lb ground meat
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 (10 oz) can Rotel Italian Style Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 large bag of dried shrimp soaked in cold water (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs for topping


Step 1

Cut bell peppers into bite sized pieces.

Step 2

Brown ground meat with the onions, and garlic. Drain excess fat and put back in the pot, adding the chopped bell peppers. Cook until peppers are soft.

Step 3

Add drained dried shrimp (if using). Add salt and pepper. Stir until mixed well.

Step 4

Add 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Mix well.

Step 5

Grease a 13 x 9" pan. Pour mixture into pan. Top with more Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
