I created this recipe one summer when I had an abundance of green peppers in my garden. This spicy recipe is a great companion for any meat dish. It's also delicious served over rice. When I take it to potlucks, many people want the recipe.—Joyce Turley, Slaughters, Kentucky

"I used left over spaghetti sauce jazzed up with a sprinkle of basil. The seasoned croutons really made the dish however. It went very well with meatloaf. Will definitely make again."
