Stuffed Banana Peppers

Stuffed Banana/Cubanella Pepers


A staple in many Buffalo, NY pubs and restaurants, these are much different than the standard bell peppers stuffed with rice and meat.  A great appetizer any time of the year. Simple and easy. Great way to impress guests.


  • 3 Banana Peppers
  • 3 Cubanella (or Italian sweet) peppers
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • Fresh parsley
  • salt/pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
Total time: 35 minutes
Serves 3

Cut your peppers in half lengthwise and clean out ribs and seeds.

In a bowl, mix together all the other ingredients except the olive oil and make sure they area combined well.

Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Stuff the peppers with the cheese mixture and place on a sheet pan (I like to cover with foil for 15 minutes).  Drizzle the tops of the peppers with olive oil before baking.

Cook for 20 minutes or until the the cheese starts to brown slightly.

Serve hot.
