Prep green peppers, lay on paper plate and microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until just a little tender. Set aside to cool. In a baking sheet pour in 1/4 can of the tomato sauce and spread on the bottom of the pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a sauce pan cook rice according to directions, set aside to cool. In same pan saute onion and ground beef until juices run clear, drain. In a large bowl combine rice, beef mixture, 1/4 can tomato sauce, cheddar cheese, seasonings and egg. Stuff this mixture into the green peppers and place in pan. Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 25-30 minutes.
We will be making these again.
So, I'm watching a local talk show right now while typing this. They just said that "90% of all Iowans have never visited a farm".
It may just be me, but that sounds crazy! Isn't farmland, corn, pigs, etc. all you think of when you think of Iowa? (It may be all you think of, but trust me it isn't all that is here!)
So, it got me thinking. Have you ever visited a farm? I certainly didn't grow up on one, but have been to many. What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you think I-O-W-A?
Have a great night everyone!
