Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with Rice & Tomato Sauce

Hi friends, this is Angela stopping by from LeMoine Family Kitchen to share my recipe for Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with Rice & Tomato Sauce. I’ve been so fortunate with a wonderfully fruitful garden this year and these cubanelle peppers are one of my favorites. Though these peppers are generally used heavily in Cuban food, my Grandmother always made them with her Italian flair. Growing up I really did think that these were an Italian pepper, even now I still tend to use them in recipes with Italian inspiration.

Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with Rice & Tomato Sauce | LeMoine Family Kitchen. Simple and delicious vegetarian friendly side dish.

These are a sweet pepper with a pale green color. Here I decided to stuff them with a simple rice & tomato sauce mixture. I made a quick tomato sauce, simmered it for 30 minutes. It is flavorful and so fresh tasting. I cooked the rice seperately until the last 10 minutes of cooking where I finished the cooking right in the sauce. The rice absorbs all that delicious sauce and becomes creamy. These are a great simple vegetarian side dish.

      Hi there! I am growing my own this year but I am also able to find them in the grocery store near the bell peppers usually. Maybe you have a local farmers market that you could check out as well?

    We have manage to grow a whole load of these types of peppers this year. We were always planning to stuff them as the look fab on the plate, I’d be happy to give the recipe a whirl! Thanks! #homemadesimple.

      Thats fantastic Brian!! my plants are doing well also. I made them the other day just sautéed with the peppers, onions and some olive oil then served with grilled sausage. Really tasty as well.

    I love Cubanelle peppers, this year I couldn’t find them when we were buying garden plants. Usually I stuff them with mozzarella cheese, rolled them in an egg wash and fry them briefly, then bake. I would love to try your variation, they look so good.

Leave me your lovely thoughts
