Prepare a package of Vigo Yellow Rice according to package instructions.

While rice is cooking, cut and discard the stem end of each pepper and clean out seeds and pith. Blanche peppers by placing in one inch of boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Remove from water and set aside.

Meanwhile in another saucepan, sauté onions in heated oil. When opaque, add meat, salt and pepper and cook until the meat is browned. Remove from heat, drain liquid and stir in tomato sauce. Add cooked rice to meat mixture, top with mozzarella and gently stir until blended.

Stuff each pepper with rice/meat mixture and place in a lined baking pan. Heat in a 350 degree oven for 6-8 minutes.
