Stuffed Peppers??

Hubby has put in a request for stuffed peppers, which I love but have never made.

I remember that my mom's recipe was very basic (tomato paste, rice, and ground beef in green peppers).

Does anyone have a recipe similar to this that you could pass along? Hubby and I would be eternally grateful! icon_biggrin.gif

    Hopefully this will work. Found this at www.allrecipes.com. It's a bit fancy but looks tasty. I haven't tried this recipe but others off the site I have tried have been v.v.good.

    Ingredients
    2 green bell peppers, halved and seeded
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 medium tomato - peeled, seeded and chopped
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
    2 tablespoons white wine
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


    Directions


    1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 8x11 inch glass baking dish.
    2 In a pot of boiling water, cook the bell peppers for 4 to 5 minutes; until they begin to soften. Remove them from the boiling water and plunge them into a cold bath. Drain well.
    3 In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and mix in the tomato, parsley, bread crumbs, white wine, and black pepper. Fill the peppers with this mixture and place them into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the peppers.
    4 Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

    Here's what I use to stuff peppers....very simple!

    A mixture of ground chuck, a can of spanish rice, chopped onion, and sometimes I add some diced tomatoes.

    I do the same thing to stuff eggplants (but chop the part of the eggplant you scoop out and cook it with the ground beef) and I use this for stuffed cabbage rolls too.
