  1. Cut tops off of 2 to 4 Green Peppers and remove the seeds from inside the peppers so they can be stuffed later. In a large pot of boiling water add the peppers and cook for 4-6 minutes. Drain water and set the peppers aside to stuff later.
  2. Cook Onions, Garlic in Olive Oil in fry pan until soft(2-4 minutes).
  3. Add 1 pound of ground beef (or turkey) in fry pan and cook until browned or fully cooked(2-4 minutes). Drain fat after fully cooked.
  4. Add the drained meat mixture back to the fry pan and add the chopped celery, salt, and pepper and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl combine cooked rice, parsley, meat mixture, bread crumbs, 1/2 can of tomatoes, and cheese . Mix Well. This will be the filling for the Green Peppers.
  6. Place the blanched peppers in a 8x8 pyrex dish and stuff generously with the rice/meat mixture. If you have any rice/meat mixture remaining, place it in the pyrex bowl with the stuffed peppers.
  7. Cover the stuffed peppers (and rice/meat mixture)with the remaining 1/2 can of tomatoes and extra cheese. Bake uncovered in an oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
