I call this recipe Unstuffed Peppers because it has all the elements of traditional stuffed peppers, but without the hassle of stuffing the actual vegetables! In fact, because the ingredients aren’t jammed into a pepper, this dish cooks way faster than the usual stuffed pepper recipes. This will be on the table in only 30 minutes!
To make this dish, start by cooking rice according to package directions. Cook beef, bell peppers, and onion over medium-high heat until the meat is no longer pink. Mix in rice, marinara sauce, and the seasoning blend. Add cheese. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top and bake in the oven until the topping is golden brown and the mixture is heated through.
