Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean, raw ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey; even vegan "Beyond Meat" will work here)
  • 1 large bell pepper, any color
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 ounces sliced black olives
  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • Grinds of black pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup Minute Rice
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  • Center the oven rack; preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Add all ingredients to a 1 1/2 to 2 quart baking dish. Mix thoroughly by hand.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the meat is cooked through, and the casserole has lightly browned on top -- about 40 minutes.
  • Cool the casserole on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes before serving.
