Stuffed Pepper Casserole

Ingredients :

1 pound ground beef
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (15 oz) can low sodium beef broth
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Instructions :

Cook the Ground Beef: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, breaking it apart as it cooks. Once it is mostly cooked, add in the onions and bell peppers. Continue to cook for 5-10 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.

Add Garlic: Add the minced garlic to the beef mixture and cook for another minute or two until fragrant.
Combine Ingredients: Stir in the rest of the ingredients, except for the cheese. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Simmer: Cover the skillet and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time, until the rice is tender.
Incorporate Cheese: Once the rice is tender, stir in about half of the shredded cheese until it is melted and well incorporated with the beef and rice mixture.

Top with Cheese: Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the casserole. Cover the skillet again and let the cheese melt. For a quicker method, you can place the skillet under the broiler (if it is oven-safe) to melt the cheese faster.
Serve: Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Enjoy your stuffed pepper casserole!
