Unstuffed Green Pepper Casserole

"Found this on About.com under Southern foods. I changed the peppers from being stuffed to lining the casserole dish. Sort of a Lazy Stuffed Peppers. I changed the recipe from stuffed pappers to unstuffed. I love the filling for stuffed peppers and the taste the peppers give the filling but not too keen on chomping on the peppers themselves."

    This is delicious! Couldn't taste the difference from the stuffed peppers. Omitted the bacon, corn and used a jar of spagetti sauce mixed in plus 1/2 a jar on top before putting the pepper tops on instead of the tomato sauce. Plus, I cooked at 300 degrees for 1 hour.

    This was so tasty and easier to make. Will definitely save and make in the future.
