This was a nice dinner. I usually salt the inside of my peppers lightly for stuffed peppers when I make them, and I would do this next time with these, as we thought it needed a bit more salt. I cut back on the dill in both the peppers and the tortellini. DH is very sensitive to tomatoes, (tummy), and he liked that the sauce was toned down with the ricotta. This dish made a very pretty presentation! Made for ZWT 7 - Shady Ladies
This was a flavorful dish. The stuffing was very tasty. But the serving can definitely be halved. Half a pepper each is more than enough with the tortellini on the side. There were 3 of us and we barely could eat the half a pepper, so very filling. I found it needed alot of salt and pepper in the filling otherwise the flavor was delicious. Was hard for me to find the creme fraiche but managed to find it at Whole Foods. The only thing we didn't care for was the sauce mix for the tortellini seemed to be very blah for us. The cooking time is off for sure. It only took 45 minutes to cook the peppers not 2 hours. Good luck in the contest.
This was so flavorful & a definite keeper! Very filling too. I ended up with one red & one green pepper so cut them in half & served one of each color on the plates. I was using dried dill weed so reduced the amount to 1 t in the filling and there was a nice hint of it. (I also reduced the amount in the tortellini.) Served with green salad and garlic bread. Good luck in the contest!
These are delicious! I was impressed with the way the contest ingredients were used. Adding some of the tortellini to the stuffing was brilliant! I really think this is four servings, just halving the peppers. It's very filling, but oh, so good.
Loved these! Loved the ground beef and cheeses. Nice use of contest ingredients. Thanks for a very good supper--you really can only eat about half a pepper--very filling. Good luck in the contest!
