The Best Stuffed Peppers

It was my lucky day at the grocery store, green peppers were on sale! Sometimes it's the little things that make your day! My garden peppers are already gone which means I better plant more than 2 plants next year. 😀
Ingredients:
1 pepper per person, washed and cored, use green, orange, yellow or red peppers
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 tsp basil
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1 cup dry rice (use the rice of your choice, I use basmati or brown rice)
1 pound ground beef, cooked
1 shallot, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T Worcestershire sauce
Optional: 6-7 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c shredded cheese (colby, cheddar, mozarella or your choice)
salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  • Cook your rice according to the directions depending on the rice you use. 
  • Over medium heat on the stove, cook ground beef in another pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix all of the seasonings, veggies and tomato ingredients together.
  • Add the cooked rice and ground beef to the ingredients in the bowl.
  • Stuff your peppers.
  • Place peppers in a shallow dish with a small amount of water in the bottom of the dish. I use a deep pie dish. Cover the tops of the peppers with aluminum foil. It doesn't have to fit tightly.
  • Bake in a 350F oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese on top (optional) and bake another 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Love and peace,
