Good but not enough sauce and the sauce was very thick and pasty. I had to add alot of salt after it was done cooking. It did taste better the next day though.

I made this for Pick a Chef. Oh I really enjoyed this, a little different than traditional stuffed peppers but doesn't venture far from the familure tastes. I did add a little Italian spices to the meat and sauce, just cause I like it. If your peppers are really big you may want to make a little extra rice just to make sure they fill up good. The only thing I might change next time is to add a little more liquid to the sauce, but I may not even do that it is really good and thick. Another keeper!
