A tip of the chef hat to Kittencal for her Parmesan Meatball recipe, which forms the base for this recipe. I dearly love to tweet! THX, KITTEN!

Thanks Caroline! This has become the most requested dish around here. I've made it with just ground beef when I didn't have pork and it still came out great.The one change that I made was I cook the rice (not all the way). Sometimes I double the recipe and put half the meat mix in the freezer for the next time we want peppers,this works out great.
