To begin making Undone Stuffed Peppers Casserole I diced up a red and green pepper.

Then I put some olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and added lean ground beef, asafoetida (can also use garlic) and black pepper.

I have to be careful with garlic, so after some research I found the above spice which is used in Indian cooking as a garlic substitute.

When the ground beef was just starting to brown I added the diced peppers I had prepared.

Once the meat was completely cooked I dumped in some pasta sauce, grated mozzarella cheese and some cooked rice.

I stirred all the ingredients together well and let the meat mixture simmer for 10 minutes.

Next I transferred all of the meat mixture to a casserole dish.

I shredded more mozzarella  cheese and sprinkled it on top of the meat mixture in the casserole dish.

Then I baked the Undone Stuffed Peppers Casserole in a preheated 350F oven for 25 minutes.

After removing it from the oven it was time to serve it up.

This hearty casserole can be served with some fresh bread and your favourite salad for a complete meal.

Undone Stuffed Peppers Casserole is easy to make and full of flavour.

Your family will enjoy every bite of this comfort food casserole recipe.
