Lasagna noodles, four types of cheese – seven cups total!, sweet peppers, meatballs and marinara sauce are layered and then baked together to create the cheesiest, most satisfying lasagna. This Four Cheese Meatball and Sweet Pepper Lasagna is the perfect dish to feed a crowd.
In my husband’s words, this is his “new favorite lasagna.” I mean, really. It doesn’t get much better than that! It’s like my Four Cheese and Spinach Stuffed Shells (minus the spinach) met a meatball sandwich and they decided to somehow spontaneously combust into a lasagna. If only everything that might spontaneously combust could have such a delicious end result!
Get on the phone. Start sending e-mails. This Four Cheese Meatball and Sweet Pepper Lasagna feeds a crowd! So much so that a typical 9×13 pan won’t be big enough for this recipe. (Don’t ask me how I know.) Instead, I had to call in the big gun, my Le Creuset lasagna pan. A perfect match. I’m in love with this pan and how much food it can hold. Perfect for my growing family and recipes like this.
The inspiration for this recipe began with my monthly series with Melissa at Lulu the Baker. Each month we use the same three ingredients to create a recipe and then share them on the same day. This month, I was in charge of selecting ingredients and selected green peppers, mozzarella cheese and pasta. Technically I cheated just a bit on this recipe as I decided to use red and yellow peppers as that’s what I already had on hand. I have no doubt that green would be just as delicious.

Have a friend that just welcomed a new baby to their family? Or want to bring a meal to someone? I have no doubt this lasagna would be welcomed with open arms!
