Nom, Nom, Nom! These were awesome! The simplicity and clean-up are a breeze when using the Ninja Foodi, or most all other Pressure Cookers. Today our family enjoyed a nice comforting Sunday supper.

Topped Off with Baked Mozzarella Cheese

Topped off with a little baked on mozzarella cheese made this meal complete. Keep in mind this recipe can be made in any Pressure Cooker, Instant Pot, and other brands. Directions remain the same, except you will not get that baked-on cheese as you do with the Ninja Foodi bake option. It will simply be melted, but yummy too!

My prep time

My prep time was less than 15 minutes. Cook time total, less than 20 minutes. You can’t beat a hot delicious comforting meal all done in one pot, in less than 45 minutes.

I could have used yellow, or orange peppers as well, however, I decided to go to typical and traditional green peppers for this recipe. I hope you give it a try and let me know how they turned out. Enjoy.

Stuffed peppers in the Ninja Foodi

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Medium Green Bell Peppers Cut, the top, rinse seeds out and remove membranes
  • 1 small Sweet onion, or dried onions are fine
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 24 oz. Plum tomatoes
  • 1 lb. Meatloaf mixed beef, pork, veal
  • 2 tbsp. Italian seasoning for meat mixture, and one for sauce
  • 1 cup Shredded mozzarella
  • 2 cloves garlic one for meat and one for sauce.
  • 1 cup cooked rice

Instructions
 

  • In a mixing bowl add cooked rice (any variety) meat, seasonings, and a few plum tomatoes. Mix well with mixing spoon, or put on your gloves and dig in.
  • Spoon in your mixture to each pepper being sure to pack it in as you go. They can be filled to the very top.
    Next, add sauce and tomatoes to the pot, and break up the tomatoes using a wooden utensil so you don’t scratch your pot. Add Italian seasoning and garlic to the sauce, and a 1/2 cup of water.
  • Arrange your peppers in the crisping basket in the Foodi comes with, or a strainer basket that fits in your pot. Set right on top of the sauce in the pot. Close lid and set to High Pressure Manual for 10 minutes. Make sure your steamer valve is set to seal.
  • Once the time is up, let your peppers come to a natural release. Top with Mozzarella cheese and set to 375 for 5 minutes on bake. Once removed, top with sauce and ENJOY with a side of pasta or baby red potatoes.

    What Sauce are you saying to add? there is no sauce in the list of ingredients.

  2. Nicole says:

    She means for you to use ketchup or a tomato sauce on top once you’re done, if you desire.

  3. TERI JEAN WIESE says:

    Arrange your peppers in the crisping basket in the Foodi comes with, or a strainer basket that fits in your pot. Set right on top of the sauce in the pot. —This indicates sauce as part of cooking process. Do the mashed up plum tomatoes create the sauce?

  4. Nicole says:

    Hi Teri Jean,
    We have plans to redo this recipe.
    I believe that she left out that you would need a can of tomato sauce. I would guess an 8 oz can to flavor the water that is required for the inside of the instant pot.
