Prepare the Ingredients
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and halve green bell peppers.
Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice.
Combine tomato and pesto together in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate until plating.
In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, rice, garlic salt, ½ cup water, and a pinch of pepper.
Start the Dish
Fill peppers with ground beef mixture.
In a clean slow cooker, add 1 cup water. Add peppers to slow cooker. Peppers will fit snuggly. Top with tomato sauce, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4 hours.
Bake the Garlic Bread
After 3 ½ hours, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Uncover slow cooker and top peppers with half the cheese (reserve remaining for garlic bread). Cover again.
Place bread on prepared baking sheet. Spread butter on bread and top with remaining cheese. Bake in hot oven until browned, 6-9 minutes.
