Traditional Stuffed Peppers Recipe
"My husband, Steve, loves these stuffed peppers," says Karen Gentry of Somerset, Kentucky. "They're so filling and easy to prepare. I like to serve them with mashed potatoes and coleslaw for a no-fuss supper.

It had okay flavor and the peppers were no where near done in 30 minutes at 350. Even after being parboiled, they were still hard and no where near soft. And it took more than 15 minutes to prep also!
