Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Clean peppers thoroughly inside and out.
  3. Mix by hand all ingredients except for the pasta sauce and the mozzarella cheese. If, after adding can of tomatoes mixture still feels too "wet", add more rice until the consistency is a little more solid. More Parmesan cheese may be added if wanted.
  4. Boil peppers in a large pot of water for about five minutes or until soft. place inside your baking/casserole dish when each is finished. Open jar of pasta sauce and add one full tablespoon inside each pepper. I like to use Prego.
  5. Using a clean tablespoon, add stuffing mix by spoonful until each pepper is completely full, be careful not to break them.
  6. Dump the rest of the pasta sauce into the baking/casserole dish to cover the bottom of the peppers. Add a small amount of water to the jar, swish around and add to pan.
  7. After about 2 1/2 hours, remove peppers from oven and top with mozzarella cheese. Return to oven for another half hour or until cheese melts.
