    2.6 pounds ground beef 93/7
    I med onion, chopped
    1Tbsp garlic
    2 green bell peppers, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1 cup water
    1 1/2 cups instant rice, dry

    1/2 tsp garlic powder

    1/2 Tbsp basil
    1/2 Tbsp oregano
    40 oz traditional pasta sauce
    3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    Salt and pepper to taste


Tastes good with shredded cheddar cheese as well! You could make this healthier by using ground turkey, brown rice, and fat free cheese, if you wish!


Brown and strain hamburger, add onion, garlic, peppers, and spices to meat. Add in one cup water and rice. Cook until water cooks into rice. Turn heat down to medium, add the pasta sauce, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste! Remove from heat and let stand uncovered for 10-15 minutes! Add half mixture into 9x13 pan, cover with half shredded cheese and repeat for next two layers! Bake uncovered at 350 for 10 minutes until cheese is melted! Let rest 15-20 minutes before serving!
