Excellent recipe. Loved the flavors in this!
These were soooo good! Even my picky eater loved it! This is now a regular dish at my home! Thank you so much!!!
I have had stuffed green bell peppers and was never too fond of the. I like red peppers better so I thought I'd try this recipe. Dang these are good! I doubled the sauce to serve on the side. I used half Parmesan and half Romano cheese. The sauce is wonderful! They are even better the next day.
I used buckwheat groats instead of the brown rice and they were still yummy!
best recipe I have found for stuffed peppers.
