    Ingredients

    • 2 red bell beppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
    • 1/4 cup chopped shallot
    • 11 oz baby spinach, about one package dried
    • 2 tsp fresh parsley
    • 4 tbd part-skim low moisture mozzarella cheese
    • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    • 6 tbs feta cheese, crumbled
    • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 2 tsp fresh dill
    • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
    • dash Sel Magique Spicy Blend

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees, with rack centered in oven.
    • A note about moisture - less is more with baked peppers, hence the low-moisture cheeses. Alternately, dry your cheeses by pressing in paper towels. Less moisture makes a tastier baked pepper 🙂
    • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 1 minute. Add spinach in batches and cook, stirring, until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in dill, parsley, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer the spinach mixture to a large mixing bowl. Stir in ricotta and feta.
    • Rub bell peppers with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with Sel Magique. Divide the spinach mixture among the peppers and top each with 1 tablespoon mozzarella. Place in an 8-inch-square baking dish.
    • Bake until the peppers are tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving & enjoy!

    What temp do you bake Greek stuffed peppers? I’m guessing 350?

    I made these for my kids – super easy and they love adding Magique to them at the table.
