You only need four ingredients to make these tasty stuffed peppers, including a jar of Bolognese sauce. Then it just needs about 5 minutes in the oven until the cheese has melted and it's on the table in a flash!


If you'd like your peppers to become softer, bake the stuffed peppers without the cheese for 10 minutes, then top with the cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add the beef. Fry until brown and pour in the jar of the Bolognese sauce.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered on very low heat for 20 mins to reduce the sauce to a thick consistency. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Slice the peppers in half (lengthwise) with the stalks. Remove the seeds and pith.
  5. Stuff the peppers tightly with the Bolognese and sprinkle some cheese on top
  6. Place the peppers in the oven and bake until the cheese has melted.
  7. Serve with a side of salad and crusty bread.

I will assume it means 250g of mince, rather than 25?


Put the peppers in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes before starting, then set aside. This softens them nicely.


Better to fill the peppers whole than cut in half as all the fillings spill out. Tasty and really easy to make.


Very nice, I made my own bolognese sauce which included a little red wine, smoked paprika and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. If you want your peppers VERY soft (which I have to do for my dad as he has no teeth), once out of the oven stick them in the microwave for 5-7 minutes, depending on how soft you want them.


I love this recipe. It's cheap and easy to make plus it tastes delicious.


Cor these look yummy. I'm trying to lose weight, this is a really good idea for not only portion control but upping the veg intake and skipping the carbs. Might try these tomorrow night for tea.


you dont say how much oil for the pepper recepie


Really nice idea and very quick, but the peppers need a lot longer in the oven than 5 mins if you don't want them to be crunchy!
