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

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce on bottom of 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake 5 more minutes, or until cheese is melted. Spoon sauce over peppers, and serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just planted eight pepper plants, so I will need many recipes with bell peppers to use my abundance of late summer peppers. I love stuffed peppers but I have only used a slow cooker recipe to make mine previously. I know my family will love this recipe because the spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese make it a wonderful Italian dish.
