Standard

Ingredients:

1/2 cup rice

1 pound ground beef

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon thyme

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 can Hunts Garlic and Herb pasta sauce (24 ounces)

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup rice and 1 cup water in a small sauce pan. Cook on high until the water has boiled off to just above the rice line. Change heat to low until rice is mostly cooked.
  3. In a large pot, brown beef.
  4. Add spices and lemon juice to beef and mix well.
  5. Turn off heat.
  6. Add rice, pasta sauce, and 1/4 cup of cheese to beef and mix well.
  7. Pour mixture into 9×13 pan.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup of cheese on top of mixture.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes.

You can also add a chopped bell pepper to the mix (I like the way it tasted, my husband didn’t).

Serve with a vegetable of your choice.

**If you are doing the 21 day fix, 1/4 of the 9×13 is a serving. It would count as 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 blue, and 1 purple. Your vegetable would also add 1 green.
