Before You Cook

    Halve green bell peppers lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs. Stem kale and coarsely chop. On a separate cutting board, remove Italian sausage from casing.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Peppers

    Roast the Peppers

    Place green bell peppers on prepared baking sheet, cut side down, and spray with cooking spray. Roast in hot oven until tender and lightly browned, 16-18 minutes. While peppers roast, make filling.

  • Step 3 - Make the Filling

    Make the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage to hot pan. Cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. If using ground pork, cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no pink remains, 5-7 minutes. Add kale and stir often until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Add marinara and stir until warmed through, 30-60 seconds. Remove from burner and stir in cream cheese until combined.

  • Step 4 - Stuff and Bake the Peppers

    Stuff and Bake the Peppers

    Carefully, flip roasted peppers to cut side up. Divide filling between each pepper and top with mozzarella cheese. Roast until cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes.
