6 servings

What You Need

lb.  lean ground beef
cups  water
cups  instant brown rice, uncooked
small  zucchini, chopped
cups  spaghetti sauce, divided
cups  KRAFT Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided
 each large red, yellow and green pepper, cut lengthwise in half, seeded

Make It

HEAT grill to medium-high heat.

BROWN meat in skillet; drain. Meanwhile, bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add rice; cover. Simmer 5 min. Remove from heat; let stand 5 min.

DRAIN meat. Add to rice with zucchini and 1 cup each spaghetti sauce and cheese.

PLACE 1 pepper half in center of each of 6 large sheets of heavy-duty foil; fill with meat mixture. Top with remaining sauce and cheese. Bring up foil sides. Add 1 Tbsp. water to each packet. Double-fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.

GRILL 20 to 25 min. or until filling is heated through and peppers are crisp-tender. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening each packet.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute 3 cups frozen BOCA Meatless Ground Burger for the cooked ground beef.
Use Your Oven
Instead of grilling the filled peppers, heat oven to 375°F. Place filled pepper halves in 13x9-inch baking dish. Add 1/2 cup water to dish; cover. Bake 30 min. or until filling is heated through and peppers are crisp-tender.
