BBQed Lasagna Stuffed Peppers

By: Andrea Alden

If you asked me to describe BBQed Lasagna Stuffed Peppers, I think I would say something along the lines of an Italian pasta turducken. I mean it’s a delicious sweet bell pepper, layered with tender pasta, copious amounts of cheese, sauce, and meat. Roasted on the barbecue, a sweet pepper will develop a deeper flavor and a hint of smoky char which complements the savory meat and cheese filling.

Ingredients

8

sweet bell peppers

6 to 12

lasagna noodles, cooked

15 oz. (450g / 1 container)

ricotta

2 cups 

mozzarella, shredded

1 cup

parmesan, freshly grated

1

egg, beaten

Freshly ground pepper to taste

1 lb.

ground Italian sausage, cooked


Sauce

2 cloves

garlic, grated or pressed

1 medium-sized

onion, diced

1 can

tomato sauce

2 tsp.

Italian seasoning blend

Directions
  1. Start by cooking the Italian sausage in a saucepan over medium heat either on the side burner or on your stove. Break larger chunks into finer crumbs for easier pepper-stuffing. Remove the cooked sausage from the pan and drain most of the fat, leaving a few teaspoons. 
  2. Cook the onions in remaining sausage fat. Once the onions are mostly translucent and starting to caramelize, add the garlic. Add the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning and bring the sauce to a simmer. The sauce will develop more flavor the longer it simmers.
  3. While the sauce is simmering, beat the egg, and fold it into a bowl with the ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, and some freshly ground black pepper. 
  4. Preheat your grill to 400°F using the outside burners and leaving the inside ones off for the indirect technique. 
  5. Wash and cut the tops off the peppers, remove any seeds and membranes from inside the pepper and the top. Keep the tops for an awesome garnish if you like or cut off any remaining pepper for another meal like stir fry. 
  6. Now it’s time for assembly. Place one end of a cooked noodle into the pepper, draping the long end over the outside of the pepper. Add a layer each of sauce, meat, and then cheese mixture. Fold the pasta over top and press down. Repeat until you have filled the pepper. Top the final fold of pasta with a little more sauce and plenty of cheese.
  7. Once you have filled each pepper, you can put the top back on if you like. Roast on the grill for 15 to 20 minutes, until the pepper is fork-tender and the cheese on top is browning and bubbly. 
  8. Serve immediately with a fresh salad or some garlic bread.  

PRO TIP: For a vegetarian option, completely forgo the sausage or substitute a meat alternative. 

As a pasta-fiend and barbecue lover, marrying these two concepts for BBQed Lasagna Stuffed Peppers was just a genius thing to do. Stretchy cheese, smoky char on the peppers, sausage, and tomato sauce, what could be better?
