Made as directed, other than the addition of salt and pepper. Adjusted for two servings. Loved having the extra meatballs also. Made for PAC2009
The whole family enjoyed this recipe. Very delicious.
Good basic stuffed bell pepper recipe. Glad to see you use a lot of sauce! I dislike it intensely when they are dry! Wouldn't mind serving this anytime. Thnx for posting, Chef Wayne. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
