"This Quinoa Stuffed Peppers Casserole is super easy to make, really filling, and has great nutritional value. Plus, it easily can become a soup the next day and last even longer."

Yields6 servings

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time20 min

Cooking MethodCasserole, Oven

Cooking Vessel Size8 x 9 Baking Dish


  • 1 1/2 cup cooked, red quinoa
  • 1 1/2 pound spicy Italian sausage
  • 1 cup sweet peppers, sliced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can, fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 9" baking dish with nonstick spray.

  2. Place a skillet over medium heat and add the sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally to break up the meat, for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the meat to the baking dish, leaving the browned bits and grease in the pan.

  3. If needed, add a little olive oil to the skillet. Then, add the onions and peppers. Cook until tender, about 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Place the peppers and onions in the baking dish with the meat. Then, add the quinoa and tomatoes, and stir to combine. Sprinkle with both cheeses, and bake for 20 minutes or until hot and the cheese is melted. Serve with a fresh salad.

This brings back memories of childhood when my mother used to make stuffed peppers. Her recipe had seasoned ground beef and a homemade tomato sauce. This recipe simplifies the process because the peppers don't have to be prepared for stuffing and the addition of quinoa adds good nutritional value.
