I got this recipe years ago from my sister but have made a few changes to make it my own.

Top Review by RogerOH

I was a little nervous about making this recipe since Irmgard is a good friend of mine. There was no need to worry at all. 5 stars all the way.

DW requested stuffed peppers so I choose this recipe. The only changes I made was to use a red pepper for mine and increase the garlic for all. Not a big fan of the green ones.

I found the recipe very easy to make and very flavorful and will make again.
