Stuffed Bell Peppers With an Italian Flair

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

These are really tasty,hardy, and great for a green pepper lover. I also add pieces of the green pepper tops when I'm browning the meat. These are great with some crusty Italian bread, and very filling.

Halved the recipe as there were just two of us. Very tasty and a nice change from the traditional stuffed peppers. DH elected to have his over pasta and will take leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
