It's an easy way to serve beef and doesn't take too long to cook.

Number of Servings: 4


    4 large bell peppers, halved lengthwise through stem, seeded
    Nonstick spray
    1⁄2 cup orzo pasta
    8 oz lean ground beef
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 tsp each fennel seeds and oregano
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with garlic
    1⁄2 cup diced part-skim mozzarella
    Garnish: chopped basil (optional)


1. Heat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil. Put peppers cut side down in pan; coat peppers with nonstick spray.

2. Broil 12 minutes, turning once, until lightly charred and tender. Reduce oven temperature to 400°F.

3. Meanwhile bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add orzo and cook as package directs; drain.

4. While pasta cooks, coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium heat. Add beef, onion, fennel seeds and oregano. Cook 6 minutes, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until beef is browned and onions are tender. Remove from heat.

5. Add orzo, tomatoes with their juices, and mozzarella to skillet; toss to mix, then fill peppers. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle
with basil.
