Stuffed Peppers

This is a classic recipe that my mom has been making for years. DH really likes it and usually helps himself to two peppers.


3 bell peppers
3/4 lb extra-lean ground beef
1/8 cup diced onion
1/2 cup cooked long grain brown rice
1 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove
8 - 12 oz tomato sauce
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese (feel free to use fat free)


Cook rice according to package directions. Cook beef and onion in pan until browned. Remove the top of each pepper. Remove the seeds and rinse. Boil the peppers in water for about 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. In beef pan, stir in rice, salt, garlic, tomato sauce. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stuff the peppers with the beef and rice mixture. Stand upright in baking dish. Pour any extra mixture around the sides of the peppers. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes.

3 servings. I made this with corn or the cob and buttermilk biscuits.
