Today is a day to take time to make dinner. It takes a couple of hours to make this meal from preparation to eating. It's very filling when you're done and is all you need for the enitre meal. They're good for freezing and reheating later.
Stuffed Sweet Peppers
6 bell peppers in the color of your choice
1 pound ground beef
1 1/2 cups rice, cooked
1 cup spaghetti sauce, enough to make meat mixture moist
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Wash peppers and slice in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and membranes. Steam peppers over boiling water for about 4 minutes, until the peppers are starting to become tender. Brown ground beef. Drain and rinse hamburger, add rice and spaghetti sauce. Heat until hot.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place peppers in a baking dish. Stuff peppers with meat mixture until heaping. Place shredded cheese on top of stuffed peppers. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown cheese.
Any spaghetti sauce you enjoy can be used. Suggested cheeses to use are Cheddar, Mozzerella, or Marble Jack. To make the peppers stay flat, cut a sliver off the bottom so it's flat.
Flavor rating: great, My husband said Mmm.
Ease of Preperation: difficult, it takes a couple of hours to make and a lot of pans to wash.
