Stuffed Pepper Pasta Bake Ingredients
Diced green peppers
Diced white onion
Ground beef or ground turkey
Shredded cheddar cheese
Recipe Notes: This dish is very versatile in that you can use ground turkey in place of ground beef. I use ground turkey in this recipe a lot and my family really enjoys it. I’m sure this recipe would be wonderful with ground pork or Italian sausage. My family loves cheddar cheese but feel free to use any flavor of cheese that your family enjoys.
