  • 4Servings


  • 3 tablespoons EVOO
  • 4 large red bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 zucchini, quartered lengthwise then thinly sliced crosswise
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 3/4 cup pearl couscous, cooked
  • 1 cup crumbled feta (5 oz.)


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Brush a foil-lined baking sheet with 1 tbsp. EVOO; roast the peppers, cut side up, until just softened, 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the onion in 2 tbsp. EVOO over medium, stirring often, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the zucchini and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini begins to soften, about 3 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Increase the heat to medium- high and add the lamb and oregano to the skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking the meat up with a spoon, until browned, 4 minutes. Off heat, stir in the zucchini mixture, marinara, couscous and 1/2 cup feta; season.

Spoon filling into the pepper halves, top with remaining feta, and bake until peppers are tender, about 10 minutes.
