Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients
  • Stuffed Peppers
  • 4 large red (or green) peppers
  • ½ cup raw brown rice, cooked in 1½ cups water (I use short grain brown rice)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 large shallot
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1½ pounds ground beef
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 T. minced parsley
  • ¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1½ cups shredded fontina cheese, plus a little more to place on top
  • 1 cup tomato sauce, plus another cup for pouring on top
Instructions
  1. Cut the peppers in half.
  2. Remove the ribs, drizzle a little olive oil on the inside and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Make the stuffing mixing all the ingredients, including 1 cup tomato sauce.
  4. Stuff the mixture into the peppers, and place in a casserole.
  5. Put a shallow amount of water on the bottom of the casserole and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees for ½ hour.
  6. Remove the foil, and most of the water that will have accumulated on the bottom since the peppers will release a good amount in the cooking.
  7. Be careful not to burn yourself.
  8. Cover the peppers with tomato sauce and place back in the oven for another ½ hour.
  9. Remove from the oven and place a slice of fontina cheese on top.
  10. Place in the oven again for another five minutes or so until the cheese has melted.
