1/2 cup chopped onions
4 peppers cut in half
1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey
8 – 16 slices cheese
1 16oz can tomato sauce and 1 can full water or wine (or half water and half wine) less if you like a thick sauce
salt / pepper to taste
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large frying pan add salt and saute onions until soft. Add ground beef or turkey and cook stirring for 5 minutes. Salt/pepper to taste. Add tomato sauce and water and stir gently to blend. Salt/pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and let cook covered 15 minutes. Meanwhile cut and clean the peppers and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, layer peppers with your favorite cheese. Fill peppers with meat sauce and bake in a preheated 400 oven for 45 – 50 minutes. (time may vary according to your oven) I also baked some taters because I like them but you can make what ever side you like. I served with a salad.
This recipe makes a lot of sauce and so next day I made some pasta and mixed in the left over sauce for a new meal. If you feel like you need more sauce – reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and add to sauce.
