Instructions
  1. Remove tops of peppers, core inside with a spoon to remove excess flesh and seeds. Set aside.
  2. Boil rice in a small pan until done. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, mix together the rice and ground meat.
  3. In a medium pot, bring 12 cups water to a boil. Gently lay peppers in water and boil for 10 minutes to soften before stuffing. Using tongs, carefully lift each pepper out of the pot and turn over to remove any extra water inside peppers. Set aside to cool.
  4. Heat oil in dutch oven or oven-proof pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots, sautéing 5 minutes or until golden brown, stirring often. Add 3 cups of marinara sauce, bay leaf, salt, and pepper, gently stirring to combine. Bring sauce to a boil and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Transfer peppers to Dutch oven laying them on top of the onions and carrot mixture.
  7. Pour remaining sauce over peppers, cover and transfer to oven. Bake 45 minutes.
  8. Remove pot from oven and let set 10 minutes before serving.
