One Pot Stuffed Pepper Dinner

We loved stuffed peppers around our house. We eat a lot of them and are always on the lookout for new ways to make them. We've made Stuffed Pepper Soup (Link HERE), Omelet Stuffed Peppers (Link HERE), Vegetarian Quinoa Stuffed Peppers (Link HERE), and Indian Inspired Stuffed Peppers (Link HERE) which happen to be vegan. 
Today we are sharing our recipe for a quick and easy, one pot version of stuffed peppers that should please even the pickiest of eaters. It is hearty, tasty, filling, healthy, and, as a plus, is pretty too. You can sub out the lean ground beef for ground turkey to cut a few more calories without losing too much flavor. 
From start to finish in about 30 - 45 minutes, which makes it perfect for those days you don't have a lot of energy but still want a lovely dinner! 

One Pot Stuffed Pepper Dinner

 lb lean ground beef
3 green peppers, chopped (about 3 or so cups)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 a medium onion, diced
2 cans (14 oz each) diced tomatoes
2 cups water
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, shredded 
1 cup uncooked, instant rice (minute rice)

Parmesan cheese, shredded

Prep your ingredients.

In a large pot, cook and crumble the ground beef, green peppers, garlic, and onion over medium heat until the beef is browned and peppers are tender. 
Stir in tomatoes, water, tomato paste, and 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese.

Bring to a boil. Stir in the instant rice (minute rice). Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes (stirring at the 5 minute mark). 
If desired, sprinkle with a little more shredded Parmesan. 

Serve hot. 
This make 5 very generous servings. According to MyFitnessPal the nutritional counts are (per servings/recipe makes 5 servings): 332 calories, 8 fat, 41 carbs, 4 fiber, 24 protein. 
A one pot, 30 minute meal that should please the whole family. I'd call that a win!
