Three Cheese Stuffed Peppers

I made this recipe up when Ryan and I were about six months into our marriage. I was in the midst of getting familiar with recipes he loved growing up and I wanted to make my own version of one of his childhood favorites! Stuffed peppers have never been my thing. Every time I tried them, they were either too dry or unseasoned. Rest assured, these are juicy and are jam-packed with flavor! 

2-3 Bell Peppers, Halved

1 lb. Ground Beef

1/2 Yellow Onion, Diced

3/4 Cup Pasta Sauce

1/4 Cup Feta Cheese

1/4 Cup Shredded Parmesan

4-5 Slices Pepperjack Cheese

1 tbs. Italian Seasoning

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with tinfoil. 

Slice your bell peppers and remove membranes. Place them on baking sheets and bake for about 20 minutes. 

Brown ground beef and diced onion. Drain the grease. Using same pan, add pasta sauce, feta, parmesan and seasonings. Mix it together.

Heat until bubbling then remove from heat. 

Spoon mixture into peppers, cover with tin foil and bake again for about 10 minutes. Remove tinfoil from on top of the peppers. Add pepper jack cheese to the top and place in oven until it is melted. 

Serve with rice and veggies!
