“Un-Stuffed” Pepper Dinner

WP_20140218_001

I love stuffed peppers but buying enough peppers for everyone and running the oven in the winter can get expensive. Here is a very easy recipe that always satisfies my stuffed pepper craving. (My kids asked for 3rds last night at dinner!)

 

 

1 Large Green Bell Pepper –Diced

 

1lb Ground Beef

 

Seasoned Salt-To Taste

 

2 Cups (dry) Instant Rice

 

1 24oz Jar Spaghetti Sauce

 

1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese

 

 

Directions

 

1. Cook green pepper, ground beef, and seasoned salt in a skillet over med-high heat until the beef is browned and the peppers are tender.

 

2. While that is cooking, cook rice according to directions on the box in a large pot.

 

3. When meat and peppers are done, drain meat and add spaghetti sauce to the skillet and bring to a light simmer.

 

4. Once hot, add sauce/meat mixture to the cooked rice.

 

5. Add parmesan cheese and mix.

 

Serves about 4 (In my home it served 2 children and 2 adults with enough left over for the kid’s lunch the next day.)
