      These were easy and yummy. Dh loves stuffed peppers, and he says they were good in every way except the meat filling could use more flavor. Next time I'll probably spice it up with some salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.

      I made this tonight and it was a real family pleaser! The only changes that I made were... First I cut the peppers in half lenght wise cored and cleaned then, I didn't want to take the time to prepare rice so I skipped it. I also had some prego sauce that I wanted to use so I used it in place of the tomatoes. I put in a little italian seasoning along with the basil too. After they had baked I topped with shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese and a little parsley for garnish. How Pretty! Next time I will not skip the rice, I think that would of helped on the texture of the meat. Thank you for posting. I will be useing this recipe again, and again! Rachel Castle

      Oh my goodness this was so divine! I've never had stuffed peppers like this before. So moist and juicy with a wonderful sauce. I topped the peppers with 1/4 cup parmesan cheese just before putting them in the oven and they were amazing. Thanks so much for posting your recipe!
