Low Carb Italian Stuffed Peppers

5
Apr

Low Carb Italian Stuffed Peppers - THM-S, low carb, gluten free, and keto friendly. Now you can satisfy those pasta cravings without having any pasta!

Once in a while, I have a spaghetti and meatballs craving…and what I’ve noticed is that these cravings can be easily satisfied without caving into actual pasta. A few days ago I made these stuffed peppers for lunches/dinners for my work week. I can have 1 (or 2!) a day and I’m set!

They have all that Italian flavour, delicious “meaty” sauce, some amazing protein to hold you over and it’s all covered in love (i.e. cheese). It’s low carb, no sugar, high protein, and fairly low calorie. Pair it with a big salad and some cooked veggies and you have a perfectly balanced low carb dinner. Serves 4 (if you have 2 halves each).

Stuffed Italian Peppers

  1. 4 large peppers
  2. 1/2 lb. lean organic ground beef
  3. 1-2 tsp. sea salt
  4. 1/2 tsp. pepper
  5. 1 tbsp. olive oil
  6. 1/2 large sweet white onion, diced
  7. 3-4 garlic toes, pressed
  8. 1 small bunch curly parsley, chopped
  9. 4-6 large white mushrooms, sliced
  10. 1-1/2 cups diced tomatoes*
  11. 1 cup tomato sauce
  12. 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning**
  13. Mozzarella cheese, grated

*I used canned
**This one is organic

Directions: Cook your ground beef, set aside. Add salt and pepper.

In a frying pan, cook your onion and garlic until translucent. Add mushrooms and parsley and fry till wilted and soft. Add to beef mixture. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add spices and tomato sauce and let simmer for 10-15 minutes on low.

Line parchment paper on a baking pan. Slice the peppers in half and take the core out carefully. Fill halves of pepper with beef mixture and bake for 10 minutes. You may have a bit extra of beef mixture, depending on how big your peppers are. Save and add to my favourite chilli recipe (make it not vegan!).
