"If you got to this page by a photo link on yummly or pinterest - the photo is mine and is being lifted off the AR website. The recipe has been modified, which is why it looks way saucier then the recipe here is. If you want a link to the actual recipe in the photo you can follow this one. http://oldcrohnies.blogspot.com/2011/10/unstuffed-peppers.html or find me on AR where I actually reviewed the recipe and added a photo - the user name is the same as here."

"Quick, easy and really good. I did add about a Tbsp of minced garlic and we melted mozzarella on top before serving just like we do with real stuffed peppers. This will definitely become a regular go to quick meal."

"This is a fabulous way to get all of the flavor of stuffed peppers without all of the time and effort. I like to use leftover rice and reduce the liquid and cooking time for an even faster result."

"Definately a Keeper! First time around found it to be a bit bland - Added some Steak Seasoning & fresh garlic to veggie's - mmmmm

This one somehow finds itself repeating itself in our household too :)"

"My wife and I liked this recipe very much, we put in our favorites list. I did the directions a little different. After the ground beef was about half cooked I added the vegetables and spices. When the meat was cooked and veggies tender I added the remaining ingredients. It turned out great. I didn't see any reason to remove the meat and then put it back in."
