  • 3 cups Prego® Lower Sodium Traditional Italian Sauce
  • 6 medium green pepper

  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a salad of romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes drizzled with lowfat balsamic vinaigrette.  For dessert, serve biscotti with prepared lemon curd for dipping.
  • Step 1

    Cook the rice without salt or butter according to the package directions.

  • Step 2

    Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Pour off any fat. Stir 2 cups of the sauce and the rice in the skillet.

  • Step 3

    Cut each pepper in half lengthwise. Discard the seeds and white membranes. Place the pepper shells in a 17 x 11-inch roasting pan.

  • Step 4

    Spoon the beef mixture into the pepper shells. Pour the remaining sauce over the filled peppers. Cover the dish.

  • Step 5

    Bake at 400° F. for 45 minutes or until the peppers are tender. Top with the cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
