Italian Bell Pepper Nachos

Nachos but make it low carb amiright?

I took a poll on my Instagram stories and asked what type of recipes y’all wanted to see this week – “low carb” and “time saving” both won by a long shot! This recipe ticks both boxes ✅!

I originally intended on making Italian stuffed bell peppers, but then without thinking I started slicing up my peppers #blondemoment 🤪😳 I still wanted to make something I could roast instead of standing over the stovetop (because ehm, Bachelor) badaboom badabing the nachos came to be!

Well guys, the last minute not what I planned nachos ended up being amazing! Rich in flavor from the Italian sausage, ooey gooey from the mozzarella with the perfect crunch from the peppers. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients
  

  • 3 red bell peppers seeds removed
  • 2 Italian sausage links casing removed (uncooked)
  • 1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes drained
  • 1/2 ball mozzarella thinly sliced
  • chopped basil leaves

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut your bell peppers into wedges (about 6-8 per pepper). On a sheet pan lined with foil and greased lightly, spread out peppers evenly.
  • In a skillet, add Italian sausage and use a wooden spoon to break up into crumbles. Cook until no longer pink, then top peppers evenly with cooked sausage. Top with diced tomatoes and spread evenly between the peppers.
  • Top sausage-filled bell pepper wedges with mozzarella slices and place into oven for 15-20 minutes. Turn heat up to 500 degrees or your highest setting to broil the cheese – keep watch! Should only take 1-2 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and topped with basil leaves! Enjoy warm.
