Stuffed Bell Peppers

Today was kinda snowy so I thought I would make a cozy comfort food meal. Stuffed Bell Peppers are yummy and somewhat easy.

You need:
6 Green Bell Peppers
1 Jar of Traditional spaghetti sauce
2 cups cooked rice OR boil in bag type rice(my fav!)
1 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 small onion

1. Put a pan to boil a good amount of water and add a little salt to the water.

 Wash and cut tops off and put a small sprinkle of salt in side the peppers and set aside for the boiling water. When water is rolling add peppers and boil for 5-6 min until kinda tender.

 Dice onion and some of the edges of pepper and soften in a pan with a little olive oil.
When the peppers are done in water I add the bags of rice and cook them till done.
Also add beef to the onion mix and brown and season with salt & pepper to taste.
When beef is done add about a half cup of sauce and mix. Add rice when done.
 Spoon mixture into peppers in a 13x9 dish and top with remaining sauce and bake in a 350 preheated oven for 15-20 min. Top with cheese and serve.

*variation-You can omit the sauce and add cheese to rice mix and bake for the same amount of time.
