8 servings

  • 4 large green bell peppers, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed
  • 1 lb. ground beef sirloin
  • 4 ounces ground Italian sausage
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce, divided
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh chopped parsley

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a roasting pan (large enough to accommodate 8 pepper halves in a single layer) with cooking spray.

Combine the ground sirloin, Italian sausage, brown rice, Italian seasonings, salt, pepper, garlic, Parmesan cheese, egg. Mix until combined.

Divide meat mixture evenly among the green pepper halves; press to compress slightly. Arrange halves in prepared pan. Spoon the remaining Classico® Tomato & Basil sauce onto the tops of the meat and peppers. Cover tightly with foil.

Bake until the peppers are soft and internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees F, about 1 1/2 hours.

Remove from oven. Remove foil and top each pepper with shredded cheese.

Turn oven to broil. Place peppers, uncovered under the broiler. Broil until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
