“My husband, Jim, discovered this healthful recipe, and it’s become a favorite main dish,” says Nancy High in Raleigh, North Carolina. “He’s apt to sneak a hot pepper into the skillet since he believes that hotter is always better!”

"The pasta to "stuff" ratio is very small, thus, double the pasta and it will be better. The taste was good, but I wouldn't pay full-price for all the peppers."
