Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl combine the beef, spinach, zucchini, onion, bulghur, egg, oregano, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.

Arrange the pepper halves cut side up in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and fill each pepper half with the meat mixture. Pour the tomatoes over the peppers and sprinkle with the feta cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the meat mixture is completely cooked and the peppers are tender, about 25 minutes longer.

    My boyfriend is Greek, so when he told me he'd like home cooked meals reminiscent of the motherland, I mentally cringed with fear. This recipe came to my rescue! I wanted something easy that I couldn't mess up. I followed the recipe accordingly, but kept the food in the oven for 10 minutes longer (the temp of my oven is a bit off). It came out great and he LOVED it. Reminded him of his mother's stuffed peppers. I will be making this again, but with green peppers as they are deeper hold more.

    We used hot Italian sausage and that meat made them more tasty.
    Cooking time was the same.
    We used the food processor for the zucchini and the onion , and brown rice instead of the bulghur .
    All who ate them said they were delicious.
    We now call them Greco-Italian Stuffed Peppers !!
