Cut off the tops of peppers & scoop out inside. If they are not flat on the bottom, slice off just a little sliver so they will stand up in a casserole dish. Brown about a pound of ground beef or turkey with a chopped onion and a couple cloves of garlic, if you like. Drain and add l C. rice. 3 T. butter or olive oil, 1 tsp salt, dash of pepper, 2 c. tomato sauce. Stuff the pepper loosely. Put the lids back on them for cooking. Add water to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Bake @ 325 for 1 1/2 hours. When they are almost done, you can remove the tops and put a little cheese on top or some bread crumbs. If your family loves cheese, you can add some to the filling. This should be enough stuffing for about 6 medium size peppers.
