I made this with a few changes and it was excellent. My husband loved it! I had to double the recipe and I actually used a whole jar of Classico Italian Sausage pasta sauce. Mixing 1 cup of th...

Great recipe!! Everyone loved it including my husband who hates everything.

These were delicious...I made 6 peppers to have leftovers and My hubby ate 4 and I ate 2. 0 leftovers! He said I could open a restaurant the way I have been cooking lately!

Really good. Added a lot more sauce and I had to cook it a lot longer. Closer to 1 1/2 hrs.

These turned out perfectly! I used ground turkey breast instead of beef to reduce the fat...very good nonetheless.
