MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2010

By not boiling the green peppers, the taste is more vibrant and the fresh tomato sauce makes it taste fresh of out the garden, I did however bake mine at 350 for 1hour with a cover and they were wonderful...

MY REVIEW

I love this receipe with the exception of the sodium. I reduced the amount of sodium to 1/2 teaspoon, increased the tomato sauce to 16 oz, added 2 teaspoons of sugar and eliminated the water. The sugar eliminates the bitterness of the peppers and the acidity from the tomatoes.

try rubbing the inside of the green pepper with a little salt. Takes away the "green", or bitter taste of the pepper. Also the pepper seems to cook from inside out, and is very tender.

Good recipe, however, I cooked hamburger before simmering peppers stuffed. Also needs more seasonings as were a bit bland. Otherwise a very good recipe : )
