    HEP MEP's Note:

    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.

      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!
