Meaty Stuffed Peppers
A delicious and nutritious meal is only a half hour away with Meaty Stuffed Peppers. They'll be ready in no time.
What You'll Need:
5 green or red bell peppers
1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can Italian-style tomato sauce
teaspoons crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
teaspoon black pepper
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
- Cut tops off bell peppers, and reserve tops; remove and discard seeds and membranes. Cook peppers in boiling salted water 4 minutes or until crisp- tender drain.
- Coarsely chop reserved pepper tops. Cook chopped pepper, beef, and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
- Return meat mixture to skillet; stir in tomato sauce and next 3 ingredients; cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until mixture thickens.
- Carefully spoon meat mixture into peppers. Sprinkle with cheese.
Quickly chop bell pepper tops with ease using this little trick: Simply trim the pepper rim away from the stem with 4 strokes in a square-like pattern; then continue to chop pepper.
