Ingredients

  • 4 Green Bell Peppers, tops and seeds removed
  • 1 Pound Ground Italian Sausage
  • 1 Cup Chopped Mushrooms
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 3 Cups Riced Cauliflower, Fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 Cups Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F.  Place the peppers in an 8x8 baking dish and season the insides with salt.  Set aside.
  • Make the filling: In a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook and break up the sausage until no longer pink.  Add in the chopped mushrooms, garlic, cauliflower, and 1 cup of the cheese.  Taste the mixture and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Remove from heat.
  • Using a spoon, fill each green pepper with the filling mixture, packing each one full and smoothing out the top.  Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  • Cover the peppers with foil and bake in the pre-heated oven for 35 minutes.  When the time is up, remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes.  Serve.

  • Monterey Jack is my preferred cheese, but you could use cheddar or gouda.
  • If you use fresh cauliflower, the cooking time will remain the same as with the frozen.  You would just need to follow my tutorial for ricing the cauliflower here: Cauliflower Rice.
