How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Set aside.
  • While rice cooks, cut tops off bell peppers; reserve tops. Discard seeds and membranes. Place peppers, cut sides down, in an 8-inch square baking dish; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at high 2 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Cool.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and the next 5 ingredients (beef through allspice); cook 4 minutes or until beef is lightly browned, stirring to crumble. Remove from heat. Add rice, 1/2 cup pasta sauce, and cheese to beef mixture, stirring to combine.
  • While beef cooks, combine 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce and wine in a small saucepan; bring to a boil.
  • Spoon about 3/4 cup beef mixture into each pepper. Place peppers in a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray; add wine mixture to pan. Cover with foil.
  • Bake at 450° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake an additional 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve peppers with sauce. Garnish with pepper tops.

    All fixed up and I've attached a picture that shows just before assembly.

    I made a few departures in addition to the green pepper. I used ground turkey instead of beef. I put some roasted tomato salsa into the rice mixture instead of the pasta sauce. I liked the little chunks of tomato in it for texture plus a bit of seasoning. I celebrated my herb garden and added fresh oregano and basil along with the parsley. Then when I could walk away from the rice mixture I tossed in a few sliced green Manzanilla olives which gives it a bit of Spanish flare but seemed a good match to the roasted tomato salsa.

    They came out beautifully and I'm looking forward to dinner this evening.

    Marvelous! I'll be trying this out tonight. There are many wonderful stuffed pepper recipes out there. What attracted me to this one is your technique of handling the pre-cook on the peppers. I also like how you stage out your cooking instructions. It suits my style in the kitchen well.

    I'm out of red bell peppers but I feel sure the fresh green ones I have will do nicely.

    I made these tonight with some very slight modifications: used green peppers instead of red and left out the parsley. Yum!! They turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!
