Italian Stuffed Green Peppers
I decided think shake up my traditional stuffed green peppers and create an Italian Stuffed Green Pepper version.
ground beef or ground pork
spaghetti or tomato sauce
ricotta or cottage cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
optional - 1 cup of cooked rice
Brown ground beef and saute onions.
Drain grease (I also rinse under warm water).
While ground beef is cooking (or before) prepare and clean 2 green peppers. Remove tops and seeds.
Bring a pan of water to boil and add peppers. Boil for 2 minutes.
Return beef back to skillet and add tomato sauce and ricotta cheese (optional add cooked rice)
Stir and pour into green peppers.
I placed into a muffin stone to bake (to help stand up).
Bake in a 350 oven for 15 minutes.
Add cheese on top of peppers and allow to melt.
