Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you cut the peppers lengthwise you get 6 halves. If you cut the peppers lengthwise you get 6 halves. I baked in oven at 375 for 1 hour. I used diced tomatoes instead of pizza sauce. Stuffed Peppers is one of my husband's faves and he loved this version. He did say seasoning the meat with salt and pepper would add more flavor. If cooking in the oven, I recommend using cooked rice since it didn't cook all the way. Super easy to make. Will make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a family get-together, making a double batch with sweet Italian turkey... I made this recipe for a family get-together, making a double batch with sweet Italian turkey sausage and a batch with hot Italian turkey sausage. I put the hot sausage in green peppers and the sweet sausage in red, orange and yellow peppers to distinguish them. Everyone loved the recipe and told me I needed to make this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How can this recipe serve six? How can this recipe serve six? When the 3 peppers are prepared, the tops are chopped, leaving only 3 bottoms to be filled. Does not compute!
