Stuffed Peppers

Here is another recipe for you guys. Don't know if I'd say this one is super quick, but it's not hard to do & they are really yummy! The leftovers freeze well too, just pop them in the microwave & they make a great dinner later or freeze them individually & take them to the office for lunch. I'm not sure where this recipe originated, but I got it from my Mom. Next time I make these I'll have to take a photo of them...

Stuffed Bell Peppers

8 large bell peppers
1lb ground beef
1 small chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
2 cups cooked rice (I use Minute Rice)
1 can tomato sauce (15oz)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
1 small can baby green peas
1 large can diced tomatoes

Slice your peppers in half lengthwise, put in boiling, salted water for 3 minutes.

Brown your ground beef & onions, drain any grease. Add your salt, pepper, rice, egg & tomato sauce, mix it all up.

Stuff your halved peppers with the rice mix & place in a glass baking dish. Pour the diced tomatoes over the stuffed peppers, top them with the little baby green peas.

Cover with tinfoil & bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
