Ingredients


Makes: 4 servings
  • 2 C (500 ml) uncooked macaroni pasta
  • 1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
  • 4 large bell peppers
  • 1/3 C (80 ml) milk, your choice

Preparation


 
  • In Multipurpose Pot - 12 C set over high heat, boil macaroni until tender, about 6–8 min.

  • For stuffed whole peppers, cut tops from peppers and gently remove pith and seeds.
  • Drain pasta; return to pot. Add milk, seasoning, and butter, if using. Add beef. Stir until evenly mixed.
  • Using a large spoon, stuff peppers with mac & cheese mixture. Place in Multipurpose Steamer and top with grated cheese.

Recipe tip: Go vegetarian—replace ground beef with soy ground round or lentils.
