This recipe is pretty good. I did increase the salt and pepper to about 1 teaspoon each because I know my husband wouldn't eat it if he thought it was too bland. I was glad I increased the spices and recommend it for others. This makes a lot. I had 2 large peppers which I split in half and then mounded the filling on top. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
