He isn't complaining.
Here's how I made them:
- 5 green bell peppers
- salt to taste
- garlic powder, to taste
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 cup chopped mushrooms
- 1 cup cooked long grain rice
- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- Italian seasoning, to taste
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
Cut the five bell peppers in half lengthwise, seed, and arrange in a rectangular baking dish. Season the inside of the empty pepper shells with salt and garlic powder to taste.
Brown the ground beef, onion, minced garlic, and mushrooms in a skillet.
When the meat is cooked transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked rice, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and seasoning. Mix together and spoon into the pepper halves.
Bake in a 350° oven uncovered for 40 minutes.
The peppers made my house smell like pizza baking! I topped my cooked peppers with some Parmesan cheese and served them with french bread and a salad to make it supper.
