  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Combine bell peppers, water, chicken bouillon, and garlic in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook until peppers are soft, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter.
  4. Fill blender halfway with the pepper-broth mixture. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Pour into a bowl. Repeat with any remaining mixture. Stir in sour cream.
  5. Line the bottom of the baking dish with a layer of the spaghetti. Spread a portion of the pepper puree on top and add a layer of mozzarella cheese. Repeat layering spaghetti, pepper puree, and cheese until all ingredients are used up.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use any kind of bell peppers you like. Seeding is optional. If not making this for kids, you can boil a jalapeno pepper with the bell peppers.
  • You can also cover the dish with aluminum foil while it bakes to keep the noodles from crisping and burning. In that case, I wouldn't advise putting cheese on top; whenever I do that it doesn't taste as good...
