  • 3 bell pepper , halved with seeds removed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil + more for greasing
  • 9 oz pre-cooked polenta (half a normal size tube) or about 1 1/2 cups homemade, cut into 6 even pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce (I used this recipe)
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella , divided into 6 equal chunks
  • Parmesan , for sprinkling
  • Dried oregano , for sprinkling
  • Salt / pepper , to taste
  • Fresh basil , for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Brush peppers with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle.
  2. Divide the polenta between the bell pepper halves and use a fork to break the polenta up. Pour 1/4 cup tomato sauce into each bell pepper half and top with mozzarella. Sprinkle a healthy helping of Parmesan, oregano, salt, and pepper over the mozzarella.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cheese on top is browned and bubbling.
  4. Remove from heat and sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve right away.
