Italian Stuffed Peppers
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.
