Lazy Stuffed Green Peppers

1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
3 cloves garlic (pushed through garlic press)
1 Tbs Italian seasoning
3 large green bell peppers, cleaned and chopped
2 14 1/2-ounce cans of petite diced tomatoes (do not drain)
3 cups cooked rice
2 cup mozzarella cheese (divided) (omit cheese for a very low fat recipe)

- Brown the meat in a large skillet
- Add garlic and Italian seasoning
- Stir in tomatoes, green peppers and cooked rice
- Spoon half of the mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and top with half the cheese. Spoon in remaining mixture and top with remaining cheese.
- Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees (or until casserole is bubbly and green peppers are tender).

  1. I used think about making stuffed green peppers but seldom had the time. This tastes the same and is very easy to prepare.

  2. Alec suggested adding onions. I did, and we both liked the addition a lot.

  3. I just made something similar to this last night for dinner. What a coincidence that you just made it too! I did the stuffed pepper approach, but my mom suggested that I boil the peppers in water for a few minutes before I stuffed them. It really cut down on the baking time! I also ommitted the cheese so that it was diet friendly. I'll have to try making a casserole the next time I make it. It sounds yummy!

  4. This is the most DELICIOUS thing in the WORLD. Adding Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce adds alot of deliciousness.

    Amy, my mouth is watering.

  5. I absolutely loved this recipe. It was a hit with most of the family.
