I put these together for a work potluck years ago and they requested them often. I now make it for my family and extended family. It is always popular.

    marinara sauce (i use the one i submitted on this site)
  • 2 bottle
    prego sauce (if you don't make mine above)

How to Make Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the meat, but don't overcook. Drain. mix together in a bowl with the rice, 2/3 of the parmesan cheese, 2/3 of the mozzerella cheese and the pasta or marinara sauce.
  2. Core and clean the bell peppers. Rinse well, and pat dry. Cut a small amount of each pepper off on the bottom to allow them to stand upright without falling over. Place each pepper upright in a baking pan, sprayed with vegetable spray.
  3. Fill each pepper with the rice mixture and sprinkle the rest of the mozzerella and parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Great warmed up.
