Mom's Stuffed Peppers

['1 pound ground beef, browned', '1 tablespoon minced garlic', '1 cup fine bread crumbs', '1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano', '4 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley', '3 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped', '1 cup fresh tomatoes, precooked (or canned tomatoes)', '2 eggs', '4 tablespoons olive oil', '8 medium peppers, stemmed, cored, and seeded', '1 tablespoon olive oil for drizzling over peppers before baking', '1 cup tomato sauce']

Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Combine the beef with all the other filling ingredients, then stuff the peppers all the way to the top. It’s fine if the peppers bulge a bit.
Stand the peppers on end in a casserole dish and drizzle the olive oil over them. Bake at 400°F for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375°F and pour the tomato sauce around them. Continue baking until the peppers brown, about 30 minutes. Bring to the table in the casserole dish and serve.
