To Freeze and Cook Later
Label a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag with the name of the recipe, use-by date (which will be three months from the prep day), and cooking instructions. In large bowl, mix ground meat, onion, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce. Separate mixture into four equal parts and firmly stuff into peppers. Add remaining sauce to a quart-sized plastic freezer bag, seal, and place inside gallon-sized bag with stuffed peppers.
When ready to cook, thaw freezer bag. Place peppers in an olive-oil-coated slow cooker and top with sauce. Cook on “low” setting for 6-8 hours.
