Zone Stuffed Peppers

Makes 2 servings - 3 blocks each

6 green bell peppers - 4 with tops off and 2 diced up for stuffing (2c)
1 c diced onion (1c)
2/5 c cooked brown rice (2c)
1 1/4 c diced tomato (1 c)
6 oz lean ground beef** (4 p)
2 oz low fat cheese (2p)
2 t EVOO (6f)
salt and pepper

** I substituted Yves Veggie Ground Round to make this dish vegetarian (I used 1 & 1/2 c of the veggie ground round). Rich couldn't even tell the difference! To make this super quick, I used frozen precut onion and diced bell pepper. I used the peppers I had, yellow and red.

Cook 4 peppers ina small amount of water and salt in the microwave, until slightly tender. Combine rice, diced peppers, tomato, hamburger meat, and salt and pepper and saute in EVOO until veggies are tender. Stuff the 4 green peppers with mixture. Any remaining mixture should be placed around stuffed peppers. Bake in 350 degree oven, top with cheese and serve.
