Single Serving Sausage Parm Stuffed Pepper
- 1 link uncooked Italian style poultry sausage casing removed
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 2 tablespoons Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

- 1 tablespoon chicken broth or water
- 1/4 cup marinara sauce I use Victoria's
- 1 tablespoon reduced fat mozzarella cheese
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- Step 1 Add poultry sausage meat and spinach to a skillet over medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes, breaking meat up with a spoon or spatula, until sausage is fully crumbled and cooked through
- Step 2 Stir breadcrumbs into cooked sausage mixture and season with salt and pepper
- Step 3 Stuff prepared sausage mixture into pepper halves and return peppers to skillet
- Step 4 Over medium low heat, pour broth or water into skillet and then add marinara sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes until bottoms of pepper halves are seared and sauce has thickened slightly
- Step 5 Sprinkle mozzarella and then parmesan equally over pepper halves and continue to heat until cheese is well melted
The Beauty of Customization:
One of the charms of this recipe lies in its adaptability. Feel free to customize the stuffing with your favorite cheese, herbs, or additional veggies to tailor it to your taste preferences. This single-serving wonder is a canvas for your culinary creativity.
Perfect for Solo Dinners or a Quick Lunch:
Whether you’re cooking for one or simply seeking a hassle-free and delicious meal, the Single Serving Sausage Parm Stuffed Pepper is the perfect solution. It’s a satisfying and flavorful dish that can be prepared in a pinch, leaving you with minimal cleanup and maximum enjoyment.
I highly recommend using uncooked poultry sausage for this dish! While you can use precooked, the texture and oils of uncooked sausage contribute a lot to the overall meal. Victoria’s Sauce is one of my all-time favorite products! It’s lower in sugar than many other pre-made sauces and is delicious.
If you’re getting impatient waiting for the cheese to melt, you can loosely cover your pan on the stovetop to speed up the process. If your dish is oven-safe, you can also put it under a broil for a quickly browned topping
For this recipe, I typically slice my pepper into two halves and stuff each equally with filling. If you prefer the look of a single, fully stuffed pepper, though, slice the top off and fill the entire cavern with filling. Follow the remaining directions from there.
If you’re concerned about buying an entire package of poultry sausages to only use one, remember that they freeze very well! I recommend separating the links before freezing though or you’ll end up with a block of frozen sausages.
