I had never made stuffed peppers with anchovies before. I used regular rice and bonapetite seasoning McCormick, along with the basil. I cut the peppers in half horizonally and leave the stem end in on one half, then you have nice cups. I also put the peppers in boiling water for a few minutes.I used the large red and yellow peppers. Very good. Now I will make with cooked barley instead of rice and see how it turns out.Thanks for posting.
