EASY Stuffed Pepper Casserole is baked in the oven for a cheesy dinner meal! This dish uses my Mother's famous stuffed pepper recipe but I turned it into a casserole to make it quicker. It's filled with ground beef, green peppers, diced tomatoes, rice and smothered in mozzarella cheese.

Growing up one of my Mother’s favorite meals to make was stuffed peppers.  Whenever I go back to visit my Father I always ask him to think of a meal or two he wants me to make for him and usually always he requests Mom’s Stuffed Peppers.   

What isn’t there to love about stuffed peppers?  Fresh peppers, meat, tomato sauce, rice and mozzarella cheese.   Yes, please!   The seasonings add so much flavor and you can make it as spicy or mild as you want.

Ok, we have the 3 C’s here.  Let’s talk about them.

Cheesy – who doesn’t love cheesy dishes (hello Cheesy Green Beans)?  Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan are my favorites for recipes.  And this recipe includes 2 cheeses!
Cauliflower – beautiful cauliflower, fresh from the garden, I love you.  You can’t go wrong with cauliflower, you just can’t!
Casserole – I love casseroles.   You put them inside the oven and magic happens.  That’s the only way I can describe it.

We love this casserole, especially when we can pick the cauliflower straight from the garden.   We love this dish as a meatless Monday meal with crusty bread on the side.   But you can also serve the casserole as a side dish,  it’s perfect to pair with a meat at the holiday table.

Vegetarian Taco Casserole

taco casserole

This Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole is one of our favorite dinner recipes.  It’s one of those dishes that you don’t get sick of having multiple times a week (we love it that much).  Since trying to make more vegetarian meals for my family, I’ve had to figure out how to  change my original taco casserole recipe and that’s what I did for this dish.  Instead of ground beef, I’m adding in black beans and frozen corn.  

Mexican Vegetarian Recipe

Mix that with some elbow macaroni, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, tomato soup, taco seasoning mix and taco cheese and you have the perfect weeknight meal!  I don’t want to call this recipe healthy, because it does have the word “cheesy” in the title, but the recipe only calls for 3/4 cups of cheese and if you want you can even add less.    You could even skip the cheese if you want to!
