    My whole family loved them--very similar to my grandmother's recipe, but easier due to the seasoning packet. We have to double the recipe every time we make them--they are great left over. I highly recommend these for a family dinner!

    Great and simple recipe! I sprinkled my bell peppers with shredded cheese once they cooled a little after being taken out of the oven! This recipe is a family favorite!!!

    Made it exactly as described, and it turned out perfect. Husband thought it was delicious. I don't know that the dressing mix adds anything to it. I'd prefer to kick it up a bit and will try the spaghetti sauce and onion soup mix variation next time
