Italian Style Stuffed Bell Peppers
2. Brown your ground beef in a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add garlic, onions, and peppers when beef is almost thoroughly browned. Remove from pain when no longer pink, and drain away excess grease. Allow to cool.
3. In a large bowl combine: meat/pepper/onion/garlic, rice, Italian seasoning and 1.5 cups of the marinara sauce. Stir to combine thoroughly, season with salt and pepper, and then stuff each pepper with the mixture till full.
I love how the peppers soften and develop their flavors while still staying intact for serving purposes. The mixture inside is moist and flavorful from the additional herbs we add as well as adding the onions and peppers. You can serve these with a side salad or some pasta on the side. Either way works great!
