I loved it! Easy to prepare. I had only 4 peppers so I put the leftover meat mixture in a small tin loaf pan to prepare as a meatloaf later. I also like the peppers as leftovers. I heated one in the microwave today on high for 1 minute and it was perfect. This is a 5 star keeper!!!!
very good, I had to scale down the recipe to make four peppers. I think I might add a little of the sauce to the meat mixture. Very tastey!!
Pay attention to that RICE!! Against my better judgement, I used raw rice, and it was a mistake. Perhaps converted rice, or pre-cooked rice, as in most other recipes for stuffed peppers.
