Isn’t it funny how your tastes change? When I was a kid I loathed stuffed peppers. Now as an adult, I love them. This casserole is a spin on that classic dish. It is easy to put together, and also great for a potluck.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cook a diced onion, 3 cloves of minced garlic and a pound of lean ground beef together until the onion and garlic are tender and the beef is browned. Remove this from the heat.

Stir it all together.

  1. I also used to hate stuffed peppers but I think it’s because my aunt was a super healthy person and barely cooked with any spices or condiments, so they tasted very dull to me! This casserole looks delicious, it is the kind of comforting food we love at home!
