Stuffed Peppers

This is my favorite and it makes great left overs.

Green peppers
Tomato sauce
White rice
cheese (optional)
season salt

Cook rice, while rice is cooking cook hamburger. (I usually use about 4 large green peppers and about 1/3 -1/2 pound of hamburger, I always end up with extra rice, you can just eyeball it). when the hamburger is done put in a mixing bowl and mix about 1 can tomato sauce and 1 egg and cheese if you want. stuff each pepper with this mixture. in another bowl mix tomato sauce and season salt. pour tomato mix on top of each pepper. then leave the rest of the sauce in case you want more when you eat them. put the stuffed pepper in a sauce pan and put enough water to about a little over half way on the peppers and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until the pepper is soft.

-if you have extra meat mix, i usually put it in a casserole dish or in the fridge and make Shepard's pie or something out of it the next day.

I love stuffed peppers. They're great because they make such a cute lil' cup for the rice/beef mixture and when the pepper is cooked, it's hardly peppery. What a 'good thing'.. very Martha.
