Marsha's Italian Stuffed Peppers

" Quick and easy stuffed peppers with an Italian twist."

Submitted by Marsha


1 lb ground beef
Cooked brown rice (serving for 4 option follow package directions)
2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms
6 green onions sliced, white & green part
4 cloves minced garlic
1 jar pasta sauce
about 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste


Brown beef in large saute pan, when beef is almost cooked add in mushrooms, onions & garlic. Cook for about another 5 mins. Add cooked rice 1/3 of jar of pasta sauce, water & Parmesan cheese.
You should have enough stuffing for 6 medium peppers. You can also stuff 4 peppers & freeze the leftover stuffing for later use like I do.

Stuff peppers & top each one with a couple tablespoons of pasta sauce.

Bake at 350 until peppers are soft but not mushy. Approx 1/2 hr to 45 mins. I also add a little water to the bottom of the baking dish about 1/2 way thru cooking.

Heat up remaining sauce to serve at the table along with more freshly grated Parmesan cheese
