We like to call these Old-Fashioned Stuffed Peppers. That's because these taste just like the way that Mom used to make 'em. It's a hearty and beefy dinner recipe that you'll want to keep forever.
What You'll Need
- 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, divided
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 cup uncooked instant rice
- 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 large bell peppers, washed, tops removed, sliced in half, and seeded
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce on bottom of 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
- In a large bowl, combine ground beef, rice, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1 cup spaghetti sauce, the water, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper; mix well.
- Stuff each bell pepper half with an equal amount of meat mixture and place in prepared baking dish. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce evenly over stuffed peppers.
- Cover and cook 40 to 45 minutes, or until no pink remains in meat and rice is tender. Remove from oven, uncover, and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
