Not only is this recipe quick and easy to make, but it's an economical treat as well. I don't know of a more satisfying way to stretch a half pound of meat! —Sheila Friedrich, Antelope, Montana

Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh oregano, basil or parsley, optional

Directions

Bake potatoes in a microwave or conventional oven.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and green pepper with onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato and pizza sauce; heat through.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Italian sausage also tastes great in this recipe.
  • If you have leftover potatoes from last night's dinner, this is a good way to repurpose them. Baked sweet potatoes will work, too!
