This filled pepper noodle bake is delicious!
I love making dishes that take very little time but are full of flavor. That’s exactly that recipe. If you like stuffed green peppers, you will love this dish. It’s basically stuffed peppers mixed with pasta and baked. It’s perfect to serve on a busy weekday evening as it’s easy to make and the leftovers heat up great.
Ingredients for the pasta casserole with filled pepper
Diced green peppers
Diced white onion
Ground beef or ground turkey
Grated cheddar cheese
Recipe Notes: This dish is very versatile because you can use ground turkey instead of ground beef. I use ground turkey a lot in this recipe and my family really enjoy it. I’m sure this recipe would be wonderful with minced pork or Italian sausage. My family loves cheddar cheese, but you can use whatever cheese flavor your family enjoys.
