Delicious, easy to prepare meal that the whole family loves! Everyone used to eat the filling and not the peppers, so this just seemed to make more sense...
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 large red peppers, sliced
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 cups tomato sauce (I use my own homemade sauce)
- 1 1⁄2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Brown ground beef until no longer pink; drain and set aside.
- Saute peppers, onions and garlic in olive oil until soft and aromatic.
- Add ground beef to vegetable mixture. Mix in the next 5 ingredients.
- Transfer to 2-quart casserole dish and top with shredded mozzarella.
- Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350°F oven until thoroughly heated. Serve with additional tomato sauce. Goes well with a nice crusty loaf of Italian bread (or better yet, garlic bread!).
I really liked this dish. I substituted green peppers and only used one pound of beef, but otherwise made as directed. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!
I made this with ground venison since that is what I had on hand. This was very tasty. I will make this again but in smaller quantity since it is just DH and I that eat this. I did use tomato soup in place of tomato sauce and will keep that change next time.
THOUGHT I had some frozen ground beef, but it turned out to be pulled pork I had done in the crockpot, packed without the sauce. SO -- I proceeded with the recipe as directed. This went together easily and fairly quickly. Since I had put it together earlier in the day, I heated it in the oven at 350 for about 35 minutes. There are just 2 of us, so will likely have 2 more tasty meals. Thanks, Susie-Q.
