Looking for a great romantic night in recipe to celebrate Valentine’s Day? This one looks like a fancy, restaurant worthy dish. But the cook’s secret is that this recipe is easy-peasy. As great as the presentation of this dinner is the price. Simple ingredients keep this recipe reasonably priced for a dinner party of a romantic night in. Using sweet red bell peppers also makes this a perfect Valentine’s Day option.
Though this is a common recipe I have changed a few things to improve the hearty flavor. This recipe makes 4-6 servings. Any leftover filling can be used in a breakfast casserole for a full flavored morning treat.
- 1 tbs veggie oil
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- 2 tbs minced garlic
- 2 lbs ground sausage
- 3/4 cup italian bread crumbs
- dash of salt & pepper to taste
- 3 cups shredded cheese, divided
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 4-6 bell peppers (pick your favorite color)
Building the Dish
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Saute onion in large frying pan in veggie oil for 5 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook 1 more minute.
- Add sausage to pan and break into small pieces. Cook until no longer pink.
- Add bread crumbs, salt & pepper, 1.5 cups shredded cheese and chicken broth.
- Cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Turn burner off.
- Remove tops, seeds and ribs from inside of peppers. Rinse clean and pat dry with paper towels.
- Spoon sausage mixture into peppers, pressing as you fill to ensure pepper is completely filled.
- Divide remaining cheese among the peppers as a topping.

This recipe is great with white rice. Place each pepper in the center of the plate on a bed of white rice.
