Makes 8 (1-cup) servings

1 pound ground sirloin
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped red, green and yellow peppers
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can fired-roasted diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 1/3 cups shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce

1. Preheat oven 375°F. Coat 13x9x2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In large nonstick skillet, cook meat, onion, peppers and garlic 7-10 minutes or until meat browned. Drain excess fat and  season to taste. Stir in tomatoes, uncooked rice, Worcestershire sauce, basil and oregano.
3. Remove from heat, add 2/3 cup cheese, stirring to combine. Transfer to prepared dish. Spread with tomato sauce. Bake 20-25 minutes, uncovered, or until rice cooked. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and return to oven 5 minutes or until cheese melted.

  1. Hi Holly

    I wanted to let you know that I made the Stuffed Baked Pepper Casserole on Sunday! My husband and I really enjoyed it. In fact when we finished off the leftovers last night he said he was so disappointed it was gone. I did promise to make it again! LOL
