This is extra work but make for a good tasting stuffed pepper.

1. Heat olive oil in skillet. Add vegetables and saute until tender.
2. Add tomatoes, rice, sugar, basil and pepper. Cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until most of liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat. and let sit for 5-10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile cook the ground beef and drain.

4. After the rice has sat from required time add ground beef to rice mixture. If you want some veggie stuffed peppers only, stuff the peppers before adding meat to the rice mixture.

5. Put the stuffed peppers in a microwave safe pan and microwave on high for 5 minutes to reheat before serving.

This makes 8 large servings.
