These peppers are EASY and SO TASTY! The stuffing is so good that most of the time I don't even make peppers! We just eat the stuffing with Pasta!

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

1 jar(s)
spaghetti sauce ( i like robusto sauteed onion and garlic)
1-1.5 lb
ground hamburger
1-6 clove
garlic (fresh is best) minced or pressed
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
yellow onion
6
large bell peppers (any color)
1 c
finely shredded mozzarella cheese
1 c
rice (cooked)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut tops of peppers off and remove the insides. Using a spoon, thin the inside walls removing all membranes. Rinse. Put the peppers in boiling water and cover, for 5-7 mins. You want the peppers to be a little soft but not tearing apart. Remove from water and place opening side down on paper towels to cool.
2
In Large skillet, cook hamburger till brown. Drain. Add chopped onion (I like about 1/2 cup or a little more), Salt, Garlic (as much as you want according to your taste. I use at least 5-6 big cloves) Sautee on low for 5-10 mins.
3
Add 1 cup cooked rice and stir in sauce, enough to cover all of meat and rice, about a cup (you don't want it to be too watery)and cook on low until sauce is warmed up.
4
Fill peppers with stuffing and place in ungreased baking dish (I use 9x13x2 Pyrex). Pour remaining sauce over peppers. Cover and bake in oven at 350 for 45 mins.
5
Remove cover and sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top of peppers and bake at 350 for another 15 mins.
Serve with Pasta and Garlic Bread!
