Italian Style Meatloaf Pepper Rings instructions
- Slice the tops and bottoms of the peppers off and set aside. Cut the remaining section of pepper into two rings. You will have 8 total rings. Place on a greased baking sheet. (I accidentally cut through the side of one, if this happens, just toothpick it secure)..
- Mix ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, seasonings, parmesan cheese, onion and 2 Tbsp. of the spaghetti sauce. Dice the tops and bottoms of peppers you had set aside and add to the mix..
- Spoon the meat mixture into the pepper rings. Place in preheated 375 degree oven and bake for 40 minutes..
- Remove from oven and top each pepper ring with about 2 Tbsp each spaghetti sauce. (You will have some left over, save for another use). Top with mozzarella cheese to preference. We really like cheese :).
- Place back in oven and cook an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!!.
