Bell Pepper Casserole

I have told you guys before that my husband is a huge fan of casseroles. This recipe is one of his favorites. For those weeks when I have trouble coming up with a menu, Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole is one of my favorite easy go-to dishes to prepare. You get all the great taste of a stuffed bell pepper with about half of the effort.

Simply mix up all your ingredients and then toss it in a casserole dish. Now, my boys love the filling but they are not big fans os the peppers. I chop my pepper into large chunks so that I can easily pull it out of the boys’ portion. That way that my boys will actually eat dinner without grumping.

This recipe is part of the Publix Menu – Week of 6/12.  Here are the other recipes that I have already shared –
