Stuffed Peppers

One of our favorite comfort meals in our house is Sloppy Joes, and one that my hubby loves to make. So last week he made a big ole batch of it for us. We kicked of Sunday football with Sloppy Joe sandwiches.. 
But why is this post titled Stuffed Peppers than, because I have already blogged about Sloppy Joes and this is a great way to use up the leftovers. I have said many a time, that I am a big fan of using leftovers to create a different meal. 

This one was a big hit in our house, I have made stuffed peppers before, just not this way but with the Sloppy Joes it was fab!!! 

Stuffed Peppers

Items Needed:
Baking Dish
Small sauce pot

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  • 3 Peppers top cut off and deseeded
  • Sloppy Joe Mixture
  • Spaghetti, broken into 1 inch pieces
  • Shredded cheese
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil, toss in spaghetti and cook until just under al dente
  • Mix the spaghetti with the sloppy joe, and stuff the pepper and place in a shallow baking dish
  • Some people boil pepper shell before baking, I do not, I pour water around the pepper in the baking dish about half way up the side of the peppers, this softens them just enough
  • Bake for 25 minutes than sprinkle with some cheese and bake until cheese is melted and slightly browned

Eat and Enjoy!!!! 

** Took picture before water and cheese.. use your wonderful imagination... ; )
