Our family enjoyed this recipe. I made it exactly as suggested, using the diced tomato option. The only rice I had on hand was the Success 10 minute Boil-in-Bag variety so instead of adding it at the beginning and risking it getting mushy, I cooked it and added it 30 minutes before I served dinner. I also added some seasoned salt and dill since I usually put that in my regular stuffed peppers. It was great! My husband actually said that he liked this just as much as the real thing! Thank you for posting. I will definitely be making it again!
Making this for our third time, and realized I had not reviewed it! SO easy, and so good. I'm a "lazy" cook, so here's how it will go: cooking the sausage today. Substituting crushed tomatoes for the chopped tomatoes, as my husband's preference. Using frozen chopped onions and green peppers, to save time. Throwing in a bag of chopped cole slaw mix as we love cabbage. Adding all to a crockpot cooking bag, tying it shut, and putting it in the fridge until Wednesday. I think this makes it even better, as the flavors meld. Then I'll toss the bag in the crockpot, turn it on and leave for work. Couldn't be simpler. Agree with another reviewer that it is important to cook this on low, rather than high. Leftovers are great!
