Stuffed Banana Peppers

This is an awesome recipe for banana peppers stuffed with an Italian sausage mixture and baked in a delicious tomato sauce.


  •     8 banana peppers
  •     2 tablespoons butter
  •     ½ cup chopped onion
  •     ½ cup chopped celery
  •     1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  •     1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  •     2 cloves garlic, minced
  •     1 teaspoon dried basil
  •     1 teaspoon dried oregano
  •     2 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
  •     ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  •     1 egg
  •     1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  •     ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  •     1 pound hot Italian sausage
  •     1 pound mild Italian sausage
  •     1 ½ cups bread crumbs


  1. Cut off tops of peppers, and remove ribs and seeds. Chop edible portions of tops; set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add peppers, reduce heat, and simmer until tender but still firm, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat butter in a medium skillet. Saute reserved chopped pepper, onion and celery until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce and garlic. Season with basil, oregano, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine egg, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, Worcestershire sauce and Parmesan. Mix in hot sausage, mild sausage, bread crumbs and 1 cup of the tomato sauce mixture.
  4. Using a piping bag or sausage stuffer, fill each pepper with the meat mixture. Place in a 3 quart casserole dish, and pour remaining tomato sauce mixture over peppers.
  5. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 1 hour.
