Stuffed Pepper Casserole Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Stuffed Pepper Casserole

Turning traditional, fussy dishes into a simpler casserole version has been one of my favorite cooking pastimes recently. We are all big stuffed pepper fans over here, so I thought I’d make an attempt to turn it into a casserole instead, which turned out to be a fantastic idea! You get all the wonderful flavors of the customary stuffed peppers, but with less effort and an easier to eat form. Plus, this Weight Watchers dinner recipe was easy to freeze and store in individual serving containers, so that I could have a healthy meal easily available when needed. It was delicious, satisfying, and just 5 Smart Points per serving. We’ll definitely be adding this dish into regular rotation around here!

  1. Wow, thank you for this recipe – it is absolutely delicious! This will be in rotation for absolute sure! I did make a few changes – I used 93% lean ground beef instead of chicken, I used brown basmatti rice – a little healthier than white rice and to make it more substantial, I added one can rinsed navy beans. With or without my changes, this dish is FANTASTIC – thank you for sharing!!!

    I am just about to make the Stuffed Pepper Casserole, and wondering if you mean “saute” in the Step 1, rather than “sauce”.
    Thanks for all your good ideas and recipes.

    This sounds really good, but it is NOT a casserole…. this is a skillet dinner… I may try to print it out as I’ve tried in the past, but your website is not user friendly and it’s next to impossible to print a recipe off of your website… and what’s worse, you seem to have no interest in fixing it… it’s ok, because I have several WONDERFUL WEBSITES, that have great recipes!!!

    • OMG How rude can you be!!!! I have issues with printing as well, but I find a way to copy and paste it to a word document. It is NOT that difficult!! For all the hard work and effort she puts in to creating and sharing these recipes with us – you should be grateful! Go to your OTHER WONDERFUL WEBSITES then….why stick around here?? WHY?? Because the recipes are great!

    • OMG, shall she come to your house and cook it for you too? Just copy and paste to a word document. I do this and save the recipe. It’s not that difficult. I have tried several recipes from this site and they are all delicious! Don’t rag on this poor lady because you are inept at technology. Truly, the more I see of people the more I just want to stay home with my dogs. Thank you for this site; I like many others appreciate your efforts.
