The Ingredients

6 bell peppers, variety of colors (red, green, and orange)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Remove the tops of the bell peppers and seeds. Set aside. Discard tops and innards.

Cook brown rice according to the directions on the package.

In a large skillet, stir together white onions, tomato sauce, basil, oregano, thyme, salt, and black pepper. Cook over medium heat until warm. Once warm, add frozen spinach. Cook until spinach is cooked through, approximately 3 to 5 minutes.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until the peppers, are crisp-tender. Remove from oven. Serve immediately.
