These came out very nice! I just made them today. My first stuffed peppers. I didn't rate the recipe because of some of the changes I made. I didn't want to be one of those people who do their own thing with the recipe and then say how wonderful it was or others who use different/wrong ingredients and then blame the recipe for not turning out. I used Anaheim peppers because the market didn't have the Italian peppers. I also didn't use the nuts (personal preference). I didn't have any bread so I used 1/4 Cup of dry, plain, bread crumbs. The chicken broth and tomato sauce, when mixed with the sausage renderings, made a very nice sauce. I will definitely make these again. Also, I think the stuffing would be great for other things. Stuffed zucchini, mushrooms, or stuffed onions. Thanks for posting!
This was a good recipe, although I made some changes in the way the recipe is prepared. I pre-cooked the sausage & onions, as I did not know if the meat would really cook thru in the short time listed in the recipe. I also just don't care for raw onion, and wanted to make sure they were cooked thru. I halved the recipe, but the bread to meat ratio seemed really off (lots of meat, almost no bread) so I added a 2nd piece of bread. Because pine nuts are a tad expensive, I left them out, but woudl love to try the recipe again with them. Also, I used anaheim peppers because the cubanello were not available at the grocery store. Lastly, I baked these in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes instead of the pan method, and everything came out really well. My 1 year old loved the sausage mixture (he dosn't have enough teeth to chew the peppers though) and ate a lot more than I expected he would. My husband stated that he liked these better than regular stuffed peppers. Thanks for posting the recipe.
