Ingredients

  • 1 lb 1 ground beef

  • 1 cup 1 white rice, cooked

  • 3 3 bell peppers (mix of colors), diced

  • 1 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves 2 garlic, minced

  • 1 can 1 (14 oz) diced tomatoes, drained

  • 1 teaspoon 1 Italian seasoning

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 1/2 cups 1 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese

  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a casserole dish.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until cooked through. Drain excess fat and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, sauté the chopped onion until translucent. Add the minced garlic and diced bell peppers. Cook until the peppers are slightly softened.
  • Mix in the cooked rice, drained diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Combine all ingredients well.
  • Add the cooked ground beef to the skillet and stir to evenly distribute.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole.
  • Cover the casserole dish with foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the casserole is heated through.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to achieve a golden cheese topping.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.

Notes

  • Feel free to add a dash of crushed red pepper flakes if you prefer a bit of heat.
  • For a leaner version, you can use ground turkey instead of ground beef.
  • Make sure to chop the bell peppers and onions into evenly sized pieces for even cooking.
