Stuffed Sweet Peppers
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 4 hours
Excellent!!! Made exactly as was written and was so happy with the outcome. Family gobbled them up. Will be making again!!!
This was the first time I ever tried to make stuffed peppers in a slow cooker and they were great! We are not Feta cheese fans, so I substituted 1/2 cup mozzarella and added 3 tablespoons of Parmesan. I left out the olives. I used two cups of cooked brown rice instead of the instant rice. It's a keeper! Thanks!
These are wonderful!
LOVE, EASY, FAMILY & COMPANY APPROVAL!!
This was a truly amazing stuffed pepper. Added a bit more sausage and used raisins intead of chopped tomato's. OUTSTANDING..!! This recipe reminded me of a pepper I had in Sorrento Italy and tasted better.
I haven't made this recipe yet but have a question: Do the peppers cook in the spaghetti sauce that has been placed in the 5 qt slow cooker? I've never made stuffed peppers before.
thank you tinaguerr. I too noticed the 5 & 3 quart difference. I will use the 5 quart as you suggested. Recipe sounds great.
made with regular Italian sausage and my own homemade sauce - it was a great hit with my husband and son..will keep this in mind for a great summer supper.
I use mostly the same ingredients in my own stuffed pepper but I do have a question that no one seems to have noticed. First you say to put the remaining spaghetti sauce in a 5 quart slow cooker then you say to put the peppers into a 3 quart slow cooker. Well, is it a 5 or a 3 and why put the sauce in one and peppers in another. I'm sure it is supposed to be 5 and 5 not 5 and 3.
I've made this dish numerous times since it was first published over 10 years ago and it is always a hit. It works well for large gatherings by increasing the quantities as required. I once did this for a sit-down dinner for 14 people with 3 large slow cookers. I find that the mix can more than fill the 5-6 peppers so keep that in mind when putting this together.
