How to Make Stuffed Pepper Casserole
Easy Stuffed Pepper Casserole Recipe
- 1 TBS olive oil
- 2 cups diced bell pepper
- 1 cup diced yellow onion
- 1/2 TBS minced garlic
- 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large saute pan, add your olive oil, diced pepper, diced onion and minced garlic over medium high heat and cook for about 5 minutes until the veggies just start to get soft, stirring often.
Add in your ground meat and cook until the meat is cooked through. Drain grease out of your pan.

Can I Freeze Stuffed Pepper Casserole?
Yes, you can definitely freeze this meal. In fact, sometimes I cook two pans and put one batch in the freezer to use on another busy night. Once cool, be sure to place the casserole in an airtight container before freezing. I recommend eating it within three months of making it. To thaw, place the stuffed pepper casserole in the refrigerator overnight and use within a couple of days.
