Ingredients

  • 6 medium Green bell peppers washed and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 pound Ground beef
  • 14.5 ounces Diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Begin by cutting off the tops of the peppers and discarding the seeds and insides.
  2. Then, chop half of the tops and set them aside. In a skillet, cook chopped onions and peppers from the tops in olive oil with some garlic until fragrant, which should take about five minutes.
  3. Add ground beef to the skillet and cook until it’s browned. Once the beef is browned, mix in diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, sea salt, and onion powder, and continue to cook the mixture for another five minutes.
  4. After that, stuff the beef mixture into the hollowed-out green peppers, and top each one with a tablespoon of marinara sauce and some chopped cheese.
  5. Combine the remaining marinara sauce with any liquid remaining in the skillet and pour it into an 11×7 baking dish.
  6. Finally, place the stuffed peppers on top of the sauce mixture and bake at 375°F for approximately 20 minutes.
