Meanwhile, cut the top stem off the green peppers and scoop out any remaining pepper flesh & seeds.
Add the cooked MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ to a medium mixing bowl and add breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, and tomato sauce.
Combine to mix well. If you prefer your mixture a bit moister, add more tomato sauce.
Use a spoon to fill the hollow green peppers with the mixture. Top with another teaspoonful of tomato sauce and a small sprinkle of extra cheese.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees F until the cheese is melted and the peppers are slightly soft.
