    Luvs 2 Cook's Note:

    This is a classic, old-fashioned stuffed bell pepper. The recipe is adapted from Weight Watchers Take 5 – 150 Five-Ingredient Recipes cookbook. I use red peppers because they are sweeter. I also use the hot and spicy V 8 for zing. I also use Uncle Ben's Tomato Basil or Spanish Rice and have sub ground turkey for beef. Can cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes or until peppers are tender and beef mixture is cooked through. Cook time includes rice cool down time. Per serving (1 bell pepper with 5 tablespoons sauce): 186 calories, 5 grams fat, 2 grams fiber. 4 points

    1. 1
      Cook the rice according to package directions, omitting the butter or vegetable oil. Cool 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, with a sharp knife, slice off the top of each bell pepper and remove the seeds. Set aside. Remove and discard stems and chop remaining pepper tops.
    3. 3
      Combine the cooked rice, the ground beef, onion, chopped pepper, garlic, 1/4 cup of the vegetable juice, the Parmesan, and spices in a medium bowl. Spoon the rice mixture, dividing it evenly, into the bell peppers.
    4. 4
      Place the bell peppers in a deep 3-quart sauce pan; pour the remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable juice around the bell peppers.
    5. 5
      Set pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer and cover.
    6. 6
      Simmer until peppers are tender and beef is cooked through, 20 - 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Place each bell pepper in a serving bowl and serve with the sauce.

      This is a keeper. It's easy to prepare and taste great. It's also very filling. I used green and red bell peppers. I also used the hot and spicy V8 juice. It gave it a little kick. It's a meal in itself. I just served it with a roll and dinner was done. Made for My 3 Chef's 2009. Thanks for posting. :)
