I've never made Stuffed Bell Peppers before, but they are one of the hubby's favorites, so it is high time that I give it a try. I'll go ahead and post the recipe today and let you know if it's a yummy one tomorrow. :)
Stuffed Bell Peppers
6 large green bell peppers
1 lb ground beef or turkey (I plan to add just a bit of Italian seasoning)
2 Tbsp chopped onion
dash of salt
2 cups cooked rice
1- 15oz can tomato sauce
1 cup shredded Mozzarella
-Remove seeds and membranes from each pepper and rinse.
-Cook peppers in enough water to cover on medium-high for 5 minutes and drain.
-Brown meat and onion in skillet and drain.
-Stir in salt (and Italian seasoning, if desired), rice and 1 cup of tomato sauce. Heat thoroughly.
-Stuff each pepper with mixture. Stand upright in greased baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over peppers.
-Cover and bake @ 350 for 45 minutes.
-Uncover and sprinkle cheese over top and place back in oven to melt.
I plan to post some of the other recipes from our menu this week. I am especially excited about the Different Chicken Divan. A friend from work gave it to me a couple years ago and I had forgotten about it. It is very tasty and I can't wait to make it again. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. And no, you aren't reading things incorrectly, I really am up and posting a blog at 5:00am. I went to bed early and woke up at 4am, wired for sound. Maybe it will make me even more productive today to get my blog-fix this early. :)
