Gluten-free Sausage-Stuffed Peppers Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Pilot found this delicious gluten-free sausage-stuffed green peppers recipe at Campbell’s Kitchen.

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 pound sweet Italian pork sausage, casing removed
    1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
    1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces)
    4 medium green peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
    2 cups Tomato, Basil & Garlic Spaghetti Sauce

Pilot used red peppers instead of green. To save time he cooked the sausage mixture the night before. We had rice to go along with the peppers. I mixed my rice and peppers all together. Pilot ate his separately.

  • Heat the oven to 400°F.  Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
  • Stir the onion and oregano in the skillet and cook until the onion is tender. Stir in the cheese.


  • Arrange the pepper halves, cut-side up, in a 3-quart shallow baking dish. Pilot found an 81/2 X 11 casserole worked best. Spoon the sausage mixture into the pepper halves. Pour the sauce over the filled pepper halves. Cover the baking dish.


  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
