Today I'm showing you a stuffed pepper bake. This is a recipe that I made about a month back. It's very easy and a great way to use up any extra peppers that you may have. It's also much easier then stuffing peppers like in a normal stuffed pepper dish.
I got the recipe from this site: http://www.sweetandsavoryfood.com/2013/08/stuffed-red-pepper-bake.html
As far as modifications, instead of using red peppers only, I used a red and an orange pepper. The recipe would work well with whatever kind of sweet peppers you have, even green. I also added some fresh garlic and extra Italian seasonings to the meat/rice mixture and eliminated the garlic salt from the topping. You could also substitute ground turkey for the ground beef and white rice for brown rice.
The recipe makes enough for two 8 x 8's. I encourage you to make one for your family and give one to a friend or neighbor.
1 lb. ground beef
2 sweet peppers, chopped finely
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and topping is crispy. If freezing the other dish, allow mixture to cool completely. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, then foil. Label, date and freeze. Will stay fresh in the freezer for 3 months
