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.
First, I par boiled the peppers for 3 minutes. Then I browned 70 percent ground turkey/30 beef, with minced garlic, chopped onion, basil, oregano and chopped up the pepper tops. Added the cooked rice(I used brown) then my own tomato sauce and a little fresh grated parmesan cheese. Stuffed the peppers and baked them for 50ish minutes. They were delicious and easy to make!
I was looking for a stuffed peppers recipe that used spaghetti sauce, and this is the one I chose. I added whole kernal corn to the mixture. I also stuffed the peppers, put them in a West Bend slow cooker, and topped them with extra sauce, then cooked them on low for 6 hours instead of putting the rest of the sauce around them and baking them. They were delicious! Thanks for posting a delicious, easy, and versatile stuffed pepper recipe!
Simply declicious. I did not brown the meat first but simply mixed the cooked rice with the raw meat and other ingredients. I made a larger amount of the mixture, made some meat balls and placed them between the peppers in case anyone did not want the peppers.
Perfectly nice stuffed peppers. Quite easy and all the amounts and times are spot on.
