Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Brown the ground beef in a large fry pan over medium high heat for 5 minutes until cooked almost through. Add the mushrooms, corn kernels, chopped celery, onion and garlic and cook until vegetables are softened. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in cooked rice and chopped parsley and cook for another 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut off the tops of the peppers and spoon out the ribs and seeds, then rinse. Lightly sprinkle the inside of the peppers with kosher salt and place in a microwave safe dish with ¼ C. water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes until soft. Transfer to a 3-qt baking dish and fill the peppers with the hot meat and rice mixture. Sprinkle the tops with cheese and bake for 20 minutes until peppers are tender and cheese is browned. Serve hot.
