DIRECTIONS

  • Uncover and bake 30 mins longer.
  • May need to bake a few minutes longer, especially if doubling recipe. Mix up and cover and cook until rice is tender.
  • *Optional* Can add red pepper flakes for more of a bite or better yet, add diced fresh banana peppers. Can top with cheese.
  • *Optional* Can use leftovers as stuffed pepper filling. Boil peppers in water, drain. Add leftover casserole to skillet, add a bit more tomato sauce and water to moisten and heat. Place peppers in casserole dish, add casserole/stuffing to peppers, top with more sauce and cheese. Heat through in oven.
