Number of Servings: 4


    4 Large bell peppers
    1 lbs. of lean ground beef
    1/2 cup of chopped onion
    14oz can of diced tomato's
    1/2 brown rice (I used instant)
    1/2 cup of water
    1 tsp. of Worcestershire Sauce
    2 tsp. of Parmeasan cheese
    1 cup of Fat Free Shredded Cheddar Cheese


Preheat oven 350 degrees

Cut tops from the peppers; discard seeds and membranes. Chop enough of the top to make 1/4 cup, set aside.

In your baking dish, place peppers in them with about 1/2 cup of water, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes, check tenderness of peppers, you may need to cook for 2 minutes more. You want the peppers a little soft, but still hard. (It's optional to place the peppers in boiling water and cook for 5 minutes).

In a skillet add ground beef, onion, 1/4 cup of diced pepper cook till meat is cooked and browned. Drain off an access fat. Add undrained tomatoes, uncooked rice, 1/2 cup of water, Worcestershire, parmesan cheese and a dash of pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 to 18 minutes or till rice is tender. Stir in cheddar cheese. Stuff peppers with meat mixture. Place in a 10 x 6 x 2 inch baking dish. Bake, covered in a 350 oven for 30 - 35 minutes.
