Ingredients

  • 0.5 cup uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
  • 1 Pound extra lean ground beef
  • 3 cup Prego® Heart Smart™ Traditional Italian Sauce
  • 6 medium green peppers
  • 4 Ounce shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)

Directions

  1. Cook the rice without salt or butter according to the package directions.
  2. Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Pour off any fat. Stir 2 cups of the sauce and the rice in the skillet.
  3. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise. Discard the seeds and white membranes. Place the pepper shells in a 17 x 11-inch roasting pan.
  4. Spoon the beef mixture into the pepper shells. Pour the remaining sauce over the filled peppers. Cover the dish.
  5. Bake at 400° F. for 45 minutes or until the peppers are tender. Top with the cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
