1 lb ground beef
1/2 c uncooked long grain white rice
1 c water
6 bell peppers whole( I do four & cut them in half)
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp Italian seasoning
*Preheat oven to 350
*Bring rice & water to a boil. reduce heat & cook for 20 min.
*Brown beef til done.
*Clean out peppers (I cut mine in half at this point) arrange in baking dish
*In a bowl mix beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion, salt & pepper. Fill peppers with mixture. Mix remaining tomato sauce & Italian seasoning together & pour over peppers.
*Bake for 1 hour basting every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender ( I don't think they take as long to cook when cut in half)
*top with cheese ( sometimes I do shredded cheese other times I make a cheese sauce)
