Slightly adapted from an old standby -- we use extra mozzarella cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring to boil enough water to cover peppers. Cut tops (stem ends) off of peppers and remove seeds and membranes. When water is boiling, carefully drop in hollowed-out peppers and boil for 4 minutes. Remove peppers from water.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. While oven is preheating, brown ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain. Stir in garlic, rice, salt and 1 cup of the tomato sauce. Continue to cook until heated through.
  4. Stuff peppers with beef mixture. Set stuffed peppers upright in ungreased 8 or 9-inch square glass baking dish. Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers.
  5. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes, or until peppers are tender but firm. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
