Recipe from Prego Italian Sauce
1 hr 10 mins
1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
1 pound extra lean ground beef
3 cups Prego® Heart Smart Traditional Italian Sauce
6 medium green peppers
4 ounces shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)
Cook the rice without salt or butter according to the package directions.
Cut each pepper in half lengthwise. Discard the seeds and white membranes. Place the pepper shells in a 17 x 11-inch roasting pan.
Spoon the beef mixture into the pepper shells. Pour the remaining sauce over the filled peppers. Cover the dish.
Bake at 400 degrees 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.
Serve with a salad of romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes drizzled with low fat balsamic vinaigrette. For dessert, serve biscotti with prepared lemon curd for dipping.
