    LeahMarie's Note:

    A really tasty recipe. Learned how to make these from three Italian ladies that are wonderful cooks. Peppers are sauted first. Recipe can be scaled down, and/or changed to suite your taste. I like to use red and yellow peppers for a change. Guessing at prep time, as everyone will have their own shortcuts. Recipe posted by request for a zaar friend.

      Fill peppers with meat mixture, and place in lasagna pan or pan large enough to hold peppers securely. (I use two bread pans, as I only make 6, and they hold perfect) Pour tomato sauce over and around peppers.
