Stuffed green peppers made with and Italian taste.
"I love this dish. It is definitely on the top of my list. My fiance and I made this dish last night and really enjoyed the smells that were brewing in the kitchen. Once everything was done and ready to eat, we were truly satisfied with the first bite. We had paired the dish with tortellini and Prego sauce which balanced with the spicy Italian sausage. This was a great recipe and I thank you so much for it!!! I am very excited to make it again. "- kellyannecabrieto

Holly88 2 months agoMade this tonight and everyone loved it. I actually got 'thanked' by my kids. Although my 9 yr old didn't like the pepper itself, she ate all of the stuffing. My 4 yr old actually ate the pepper! Definitely a winner!

Valerie411 4 months agoVery tasty and easy to make! Used chicken Italian sausage and came out great!
jacobblade700 5 months agoI add the cheese between layers of the rice mixture and only do 20 min at 375 (burns otherwise). Phenomenal!
jacobblade700 6 months agoAbsolutely incredible! It takes a long time cooking, but it is worth every minute! Personal flair: I add a little cheese into the peppers as I fill them (between scoops), before chucking into the oven
jessicampierce 7 months agoSimply the best stuffed pepper recipe I have ever had. Do not boil the peppers; bake them alone for about 15 minutes before stuffing them. They will be tender but not too soft. We added fresh basil along with some chopped mushrooms. Olives would be good too. Loved it!
pwrpufgirlz 7 months agoMade this again tonight and this is the best stuffed pepper recipe out there. I do use deer sausage, quinoa, fresh tomatoes and basil, and I forgot to grab chicken stock so a dash of worcestershire sauce. I also make sure to reduce all liquid in the mix and drain/dry the peppers really well. So good!

HappyInWA 8 months agoMy hubby is a green pepper fan, which I'm not that hot on them. But this is definitely one recipe I will be doing again. Both my hubby and my son enjoyed it very much. I used the sweet Italian sausage links (which I had to remove from their casing) and next time will use the ground sausage in the package to avoid the extra work. Very good. It's on my 'keeper' list.
