    Luvs 2 Cook's Note:

    This is a classic, old-fashioned stuffed bell pepper. The recipe is adapted from Weight Watchers Take 5 – 150 Five-Ingredient Recipes cookbook. I use red peppers because they are sweeter. I also use the hot and spicy V 8 for zing. I also use Uncle Ben's Tomato Basil or Spanish Rice and have sub ground turkey for beef. Can cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes or until peppers are tender and beef mixture is cooked through. Cook time includes rice cool down time. Per serving (1 bell pepper with 5 tablespoons sauce): 186 calories, 5 grams fat, 2 grams fiber. 4 points

      This is a keeper. It's easy to prepare and taste great. It's also very filling. I used green and red bell peppers. I also used the hot and spicy V8 juice. It gave it a little kick. It's a meal in itself. I just served it with a roll and dinner was done. Made for My 3 Chef's 2009. Thanks for posting. :)
