Stuffed RED Peppers

Growing up, we had stuffed green peppers from time to time, which I always thought were delicious.  I decided I was going to make them for dinner this week, but at the grocery store the red peppers were on sale, and I love them so much more than green peppers, so I did them that way instead.  This is a fast, easy dish and it was delicious.  Daphne loved it!

2 cups of cooked white rice

1 small onion, diced
1 lb of extra lean ground beef
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
2 tablespoons of red wine
2 large red peppers, cut in half, seeds removed
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Cook rice and set aside.  In a large pan, brown your ground beef with the diced onion.  Drain grease.  Add spaghetti sauce.  I used a jar this time, you can make homemade– it would probably be better.  But I used a jar of Classico Sweet Basil and just added some garlic powder and red wine to it.  Simmer spaghetti/meat mixture for about 5 minutes. 
Add rice, & parmesan cheese.  Mix well.  Stuff each pepper with filling, and fill all around the peppers with the leftover filling.  Top each pepper with additional parmesan cheese.  Cook at 400° for about 30 minutes.  Enjoy!
