In my Lisa-brain, I do not like Stuffed Bell Peppers. But I do like this.
I don't get it either. It has rice, so it's not super low carb friendly, but it's very tasty!
What I used:
1 lb lean ground beef
2 kinda of chopped, kind of diced green bell peppers
2 cups of cooked rice
15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 small yellow onion, chopped
Italian seasoning, s&p
2 cups of shredded Mozzarella
What you need to do:
Preheat your oven to 350° (and cook the rice, instant is fine).
Kind of brown the minced garlic and onions in a little bit of oil or butter. I used both.
Add in the beef, cook until no longer pink. The veggies should be kind of soft.
Drain any excess grease.
I sprinkled a little garlic powder, s&p, and Italian seasoning onto the mixture.
Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.
Mix together the meat/veggies, tomato sauce, half of the cheese, and cooked rice. Stir well.
I also put more Italian seasoning and garlic powder into the tomato sauce before I stirred.
Transfer to the oven dish, smooth it out evenly, cover with foil, and bake for 25 minutes-ish.
Remove the foil, add the rest of the cheese, and bake uncovered for about 5 minutes.
I served up mine with a huge dollop of sour cream.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
