      This simple little recipe formed the basis for a really wonderful dinner. I omitted the salt and substituted garlic powder for garlic salt. I also used a 10 oz can of Rotel diced tomatos with peppers instead of the tomato sauce. I added 1/4 lb of Portugese chourico and a dash of paprika. Really splendid spicy dish as a result.

      Fantastic. I used jar marinara sauce and ground turkey meat, but this was amazing. I switched to this recipe last minute, so the peppers weren't cut lengthwise, but were hollowed out and cooked upright. It was great

      I followed the directions precisely, and it really just wasn't that tasty, edible but not something I'd make again.
