I’m not a fan of the stuffed bell peppers, but I love LOVE tomatoes! My boys don’t but I still plan making this for myself!
1/4 lb 90%-lean ground beef, or 93%-lean ground turkey
1 cup cooked brown rice, or 1/2 cup instant brown rice
4 large ripe but firm tomatoes, (about 8 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt , dividedFreshly ground pepper, to taste1/2 cup petite green peas, (cooked, if fresh; thawed, but not cooked, if frozen)1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided1 cup breadcrumbs, made from day-old whole-wheat bread (see Tip)2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil1 small clove garlic, minced*I will use mozzarella cheese instead what they suggest. 1/4 lb of meat doesn’t seem like a lot so I may make more to be safe.
