"Wonderful! Made as-is and they were a hit."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2012

"Delicious recipe! I used Italian sausage in place of the ground beef, & it smelled like the state fair while cooking. Also, no rice is a big plus. Didn't have a drip pan, so I just cooked these on a double layer of foil to catch the grease (alot of grease from the sausage). Would've been even better w/ marinara which I didn't have on hand, but still delicious!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2011

"This is the BEST stuffed pepper recipe I have ever found, & I have been cooking for over 40 years! The peppers still have texture to them which everyone loved, & the meat mixture is great,& no rice,a big plus in my book. I have made these several times now, and the only change has been a bit more garlic because we are garlic lovers, & I doubled the recipe so we might have some leftovers. If I could give more stars I would. Great, Easy,Yummy & it looks like you spent hours!"
