Servings 6 people (1 pepper per person)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound Sausage (or burger or combination) ground
  • 6 peppers tops cut off and seeds and veins scooped out
  • 1 medium Onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups rice cooked
  • 1 cup lentils cooked
  • 3-4 cups Spaghetti Sauce I make my own with fresh tomatoes from the garden. ;-)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the peppers by cutting the tops off and scooping out the veins and seeds. Using a spoon is helpful in scooping out the veins. Rinse.
  • Brown the sausage (or hamburger or combination) along with the garlic and onions. I also put little pieces of the green pepper tops in here.
  • Warm your sauce - or make your own!
  • Add cooked rice and lentils to the browned meat mixture.
  • Place peppers in your baking dish with sides that are taller than the peppers and fill with the rice/lentil/meat filling. If you have leftover filling, place this around the peppers.
  • Pour the sauce over the entire pan.
  • Cover the dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 1:30.
