I have a weakness for pasta and all things Italian, so it is nice to lighten things up a bit from time to time. This is especially true in the fall and winter when cooler weather sweeps in. I always crave those comfort foods! These Lasagna Stuffed Peppers are a great way to satisfy that Italian craving, and in a healthier way!
This recipe is gluten free, however you can substitute the zucchini for lasagna noodles, or use them both! The zucchini is not too noticeable amidst the sauce and cheese, so it is a great way to sneak some veggies in. You can also peel the zucchini to get rid of the “green” evidence!
I love how versatile these Lasagna Stuffed Peppers are and you can use any sauce that you like! My favorite is using the Simple Marinara Sauce. Arrabbiata is a great option for those that want it sweet and spicy! The red, orange, and yellow bell peppers add sweetness to the dish. If you want to avoid sweet, use green peppers and/or make the sauce slightly spicy.
You can also add some of your other favorite veggies into the mix and cut back on the cheese. Take what you love and make them your own! Satisfy the meat lovers with a meat sauce or some Italian sausage mixed in. The options are endless!
