- Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut off tops of bell peppers. Remove seeds and membranes. Rinse bell peppers. If necessary, cut thin slice from bottom of each pepper so they stand upright. Set aside.
- Brown ground beef and onion in large skillet on medium-high heat. Drain fat. Add rice, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper; mix until well blended.
- Pour 1 can of the tomato sauce into bottom of 9-inch square baking dish. Stuff peppers with beef mixture. Place stuffed peppers upright in baking dish. Pour remaining can tomato sauce over stuffed peppers. Cover tightly with foil.
- Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until peppers are tender. Remove foil. Sprinkle stuffed peppers with cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cut stuffed peppers in half. Spoon sauce in dish over each half to serve.

It is now a celebrity in our home! Even my grand daughter said, “please let me know when you cook this again so I can come eat with you”! We loved it! 5 star hotel meal! Thanks!

it was average. peppers definitely need to be cooked longer than 45 minutes..they were still crunchy. put them in the oven for an additional 25 minutes and they were soft but the tomato sauce at the bottom began to burn.

It turned out really good. I added some harissa sauce to the marinara sauce for a little added spice. I’ll make it again but I will add some salt and pepper to the inside of the bell peppers.

I made this a couple of times and we love it. I have tweaked it a little, instead of plain tomato sauce I use the marinara sauce and I put it with the meat filling instead of pouring it in the baking dish.

It was really good. I will be making it again. I used spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce and less than the recipe called for.

Stuffed peppers are classic comfort food, and this recipe is a good one. We substituted leftover marinara sauce for the tomato sauce and it was a tasty choice. Will definitely make again!

they came out pretty good. some bread crumbs broiled on top would have made them great.
