Yes this looks delicious I love stuff peppers. I do have a question. What kind or type of rice do you use? Thanks for any help you can give me. )

This is good! I haven't been stuffing peppers for years and this a good alternative to what I usually make. I made this as written except instead of cooking the rice separately, I added 2 cups raw rice (long grain, not minute rice) and 3 cups water letting Ietting it simmer on the stovetop till the rice was tender. I did add an additional 1/2 cup of water. I make a lot of casseroles on the stovetop and save washing another dish and heating the oven.

My garden will be bursting with green peppers soon, so I'm collecting recipes to be prepared for the crop. I have a similar stuffed pepper recipe that I make in my slow cooker that's a family favorite. This dinner is delicious. I love the Italian taste and the ease of making this dish.

I love this! I don't like having whole stuffed peppers, and this seems like the best way to get the taste without actually stuffing the peppers!

Oh my goodness. What a great idea! I don't make stuffed peppers b/c of the extra time to stuff and bake. Plus going to try some of the alternatives presented by others like chicken and sausage. Thx

I made this for my family. We will be having again

this came out great no matter what you use ground beef or ground chicken (I used chicken this time)

The whole family liked this recipe. I used ground turkey has a healthier alternative. I doubled the recipe.

This is delicious!! Didn't change a thing.

Every once in a while a recipe comes along that's "a keeper". My husband I agree, this one is definitely "a keeper." Followed the recipe to a "T". Delicious.

Going to use Italian sausage instead of ground beef

We are going to make this recipe tonight and enjoy it!!!!!It looks GREAT!!!!!!And I bet it taste great as it looks great!!!!!!!

I made this Friday and it was a hit. I will do it again. We loved it.

Making tonight

Why do I often have trouble saving the recipe to my recipe box? Once I log in, the option to save to recipe box disappears! I want to make it---it looks like a 4-star

I will certainly make this recipe as I use Mr Foods recipes many times. They are all delicious and easy to make. Hooray!!

This looks great. I definitely plan to make this. Many thanks.

"I like the casserole better than stuffing individual bell peppers because bell peppers can be large and that can be a large serving in more than what someone wants. I found that this dish gets eaten up very quickly at potlucks. There's usually a lot of sides at potlucks that are left over and not enough main dishes so this is one that I like to make sure everybody gets some warm comfort food with me if that's what they want.
