I found this recipe in a magazine last year and decided to try it out. We serve them with homemade spaghetti.


  1. Brown sausage in a skillet; drain.
  2. Wash each pepper.
  3. Cut the tops off of each pepper and set aside.
  4. Remove seeds, rinse, and pat dry.
  5. Stuff each pepper with sausage.
  6. Place tops on peppers and secure with toothpicks.
  7. Saute in hot olive oil on each side until pepper is soft.
  8. Drain on paper towels.

This is a wonderful recipe. I did add 1/2 lb of hamburger meat and 2 cups of colby cheese and it was delicious.

I changed the technique a bit but it ended up being the same dish, I'm sure. I cut the tops off the peppers and discarded them. I sauteed the peppers in olive oil and after they had cooled, then I stuffed them with the sausage (removed from casing and cooked). Then I just reheated them when I was ready to serve. I tried to stuff a couple and then cook them but it was difficult to turn them in the pan. I didn't know if my guests would like it or not, but they disappeared and I didn't even get to taste one! However, I'm giving this a five star rating because of all the compliments I received about them :)
