Instructions
  1. Bring the rice to a boil in a small pot cooking until done. Set aside to cool.
  2. Bring 12 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Gently submerge the peppers into the water and boil on medium-high heat for 10 minutes to soften. Using tongs, carefully lift each pepper from the water, turning them over to remove any extra water inside the pepper. Set aside to cool.
  3. Mix the rice and ground meat together in a medium bowl and divide it into 4 equal portions, filling each pepper with the meat mixture.
  4. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or oven-proof pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and carrots, sautéing for 5 minutes, and stirring often, until golden brown. Stir in 3 cups of marinara sauce, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. Gently lay the peppers into the sauce, partly submerging them into the liquid. Pour the remaining 3 cups marinara sauce over the peppers, cover, and bake for 45 minutes. Remove pot from oven and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

Use freshly grated carrots instead of pre-grated packaged carrots to keep the dish juicy, tender and flavorful.
You can use your favorite ground meat in place of ground beef if preferred.
