- 1 (16 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 2 zucchini
- 6 bell peppers, 3 orange, and 3 yellow
- 3 ounces parsley
- 1 (12 ounce) package pasta
- 1 onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 6 ounces minced beef
- salt and pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) package parmesan cheese
- 1 (8 ounce) can chicken stock
- Pasta is small, almost rice-like. Boil 1 cup water, plus the can of chicken stock, add pasta. Don't cook thoroughly, as it will continue to cook in the peppers. Ala dente!
- Strain, put in a bowl, retain the liquid from the pasta. Add the chopped tomatoes to the pasta. Grate 2 zuchinnis, and put into the bowl. Chop the parsley and put into bowl. Chop onion and garlic,with the Extra Virgin Olive oil, add minced beef, and brown, then strain, and put in bowl. Stir all together.
- Put aside. Put peppers into a pan with 3" sides.
- Now, cut the tops off the peppers, clean out. If pepper won't stand erect, skim a little of the skin off the bottom, and it should stand. Spoon mixture into the peppers, make sure that you fill it right to the top as it will fall a little while cooking. Put them into the pan, and pour in the reserved liquid from the pasta. Put in preheated 400F oven for 50 minutes. Then, take out, and put aside until you are nearly ready to serve. Sprinkle tops with the rest of the Parmesan cheese, and put it under broiler, for a minute. Serve.
