Fabulous recipe. made it for the parents and they loved it. However, for a less fattier recipe I changed the ground beef to ground turkey. Takes out more than 50% of the fat. Used Italian Seasoned Stewed Tomatoes for a little extra seasoning and I also cooked the peppers a bit longer. Added shredded cheese to the top for the last few cooking minutes. NICE 'N' EASY!

Everyone loves this dish! I boiled the peppers for five minutes to soften. Used one pound beef and 1/2 pound garlic sausage. One 28oz can crushed tomatoes in place of whats called for and I added a diced red pepper to the onion saute. I also added a healthy tablespoon of herb de provonce and a little oregano. The last ten minutes I topped the peppers with motz cheese. Read More

This was my first foray into making my father's favorite dinner...and it was a HIT. Although a little more labor intensive than I had imagined the end result was true comfort food. I made a few tweaks to the reciped: Subbed 1/2 cup of meat for Italian sausage and added fresh garlic. The recipe made more than enough for three peppers. I could have easily gotten two more out of it so I froze the rest. This mixture could definitely be made ahead and frozen for a quick dinner. Read More

Wonderful recipe! My first time ever making stuffed peppers and they were very good. My husband loved them. I can see adding just about anything you like to the mix corn ect. The only thing I did different was making my own sauce this way you can add whatever spices you like. Thank's this is a keeper gonna try it on the in-laws now with confidence! Read More
