  • Rinse rice with cold tap water until water is clear (about 3 or 4 times). Drain water completely.  Combine rice, water, and salt in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low heat for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to sit for 10 minutes before removing lid. 
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim tops of bell peppers by about ½ inch (reserve trimmings), and remove seeds and ribbing.  Oil a 9x13 inch baking dish and set peppers in the dish, lightly trimming bottoms (reserve trimmings) only if necessary, to get them to stand upright. Chop reserved bell pepper trimmings; set aside. 
  • In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, and chopped bell pepper trimmings. Cook until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the beef, parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, stirring to break up the chunks, about 6 minutes. Add the cooked rice and tomato sauce stirring well to combine.
  • Remove from heat, stir in the parmesan cheese. Adjust seasonings to taste. Stuff the bell peppers with the meat-rice mixture.
  • Pour water into the baking dish to a depth of about 1/8 inch.
  • Bake until the peppers are tender and the filling is heated through, about 25 to 30 minutes.  Remove peppers from oven and top with additional parmesan cheese if desired, then the chopped basil.  Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
  • Remove from oven and top with additional parmesan cheese if desired and chopped basil. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
