Ingredients

  • 2 18-oz cans Progresso Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 6 large bell peppers any color
  • 1 ½ cups breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella or cheddar or jack
  • fresh parsley minced for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan and set aside.
  • Slice off the tops of the bell peppers, and cut the flesh into ½ inch chunks.
  • Remove the seeds and pith from the inside. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add the Progresso soup followed by bell pepper chunks, breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper. Mix to form a spoonable stuffing.
  • Spoon stuffing into each bell pepper to have a slight mound on top. Then arrange in the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese onto each pepper, and then bake for 30 minutes until cheese is golden and bubbling.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle parsley on top. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Look for firm bell peppers with flat bottoms, so they’ll stand up during baking.
  • If you have a convection oven with forced air, turn it on for faster and more even cooking. Note that larger peppers will take more baking time than smaller ones.
  • For a lighter variation, look for part-skim mozzarella for the topping.
