  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook red bell peppers in the boiling water until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse peppers with cold water.
  3. Stir eggs, 3 cups of spaghetti sauce, instant rice, onion, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper together in a bowl. Crumble ground beef into the mixture and stir until ground beef is thoroughly combined with sauce and rice mixture.
  4. Stand peppers in a large baking dish and fill each pepper with beef mixture. Pour 2 cups spaghetti sauce over the peppers. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until peppers are tender, the filling is set, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the middle of a pepper reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 55 to 60 minutes. Uncover and top each pepper with 1 tablespoon Cheddar cheese.

These were delicious. I sliced mine in half instead of stuffing the whole pepper, which is what I usually do. I did this just for looks but they were wonderful. One little side note though.

I mixed Ground Turkey with Beef and omitted the sauce on top. I also skipped the boiling the bell peppers step and everything turned out great. Very tasty and next time I will add some cheese to...

Very tasty, next time I might add some cayenne pepper to give it a little kick.

My family loved the flavor and presentation but the rice was undercooked and I even added extra time to bake. I added garlic powder and used red and orange peppers to make it fun for Fall! Nex...

Turned out great even though I precooked the beef before I added it to the filling mixture, I also didn't boil the peppers and I omitted pouring the extra sauce on the top.

Would definitely make again. This is a nice basic recipe in which you can add the spices you like. I added garlic, parsley, additional Worchester sauce. I skipped cooking the peppers ahead...

OMG, SO GOOD! My boyfriend and I (21 y/o female$) loved it. Just made it last night and currently finishing leftovers. :D I made a few changes though: 1. Substituted 1/4 cup onion for 1/8 cup m...
