How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a large bowl combine the beef, rice, onion, peas, cheese, tomato paste, garlic, thyme, basil and sage.
- Loosely stuff the peppers with the mixture; stand them in a baking dish or casserole.
- Pour the tomato puree over the peppers; add enough water so that the liquid comes about one-fourth up the sides of the peppers.
- Cover with foil and bake, basting occasionally with juices, 30 minutes.
- Uncover and bake until the peppers and rice are tender and the filling is completely cooked - about 20 minutes longer.
- Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
