    3. Boil your tomato sauce: Let simmer until it’s thicker. Then add in your salt and pepper for seasoning.

    4. Stuff your peppers: Now, fill up your peppers with your cooked beef. Shred your cheese in case you’re shredding it at home.

    5. Bake the peppers: Bake your peppers for 10 to 12 minutes. Take them out of the over, top them with your grated cheese, and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle parsley over them and serve!
