Stuffed Green Bell Peppers

I made these last night for dinner, for the first time ever and they turned out pretty good. They were fairly easy to make, and pretty healthy, really the only fattening thing is the cheese. This is the beginning of the peppers, inside is marinara sauce and cheese
This is the meat mixture that goes inside of the peppers

This is the final result of the peppers...
4 Large green bell peppers
1 pound of lean ground hamburger or turkey
1 small onion chopped up
1 large can of stewed tomatoes (juice drained out)
garlic salt
black pepper
Worchestershire sauce
1 small jar marinara sauce
2/3 cups of rice
1/3 cup water
Cut the tops off of the peppers and take insides out, boil until peppers are bendy sprinkle salt inside, set upside down to dry
Brown hamburger and onions, add water, rice, tomatoes, Worchestershire sauce about 2 tlbs, garlic salt about a 1 tlbs and pepper about 1 tsp, let simmer until rice is soft about 15 mins, drain excess juice from whole mixture
In bottom of peppers place a large spoonful of marinara sauce and some cheese, pile in the meat mixture as much as you can, add more marinara sauce on top of that and cheese, cook in the over for about 12-15 mins at 350 degree's
Serve and enjoy!
