Grandma's Stuffed Peppers

"My Grandma's Stuffed Peppers are so delicious and they are one of my favorite family recipes!  I recently made them on my own for the first time and much to my delight they tasted 'almost' as good as when my Grandma makes them for us.  On the day I made them, my husband told me he could hardly stand the wait until he could get off work and get home for dinner.  I even got his seal of approval.  I was so proud!"
A Dutch Oven is a perfect pan for making this recipe.

All of the ingredients needed to make stuffed peppers.
Prepare rice according to package directions.

Remove tops and membranes of peppers.

Place peppers in Dutch Oven.

Combine ground beef, sausage, prepared rice, salt and pepper.

Spoon meat mixture into peppers.

Combine pasta sauce and tomato soup.

Pour sauce over peppers.

This is what the peppers will look like after baking them at 325 degrees for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.  Yum!

6 red bell peppers
1 pound ground beef
1 (16 ounce) package of Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage or 1 pound of ground pork
2 cups prepared white rice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (24 ounce) jar of Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce
1 (10-3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray a Dutch oven or large roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.  
Prepare white rice according to the package directions.  While rice is cooking, cut the tops off of the red peppers and remove the seeds and membranes.  Place peppers into the Dutch oven or similar roasting pan.  In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sausage or ground pork, prepared rice, salt and pepper.  Spoon the meat mixture into the peppers.  In a bowl, combine the pasta sauce and tomato soup and pour over the top of the peppers.  Put the lid on the Dutch oven or roaster and place in the preheated oven.  Bake at 325 degrees for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
