Italian Stuffed Peppers

Italian Stufffed Peppers at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
This recipe for Italian Stuffed Peppers started with the beautiful colors of the peppers that I found at the market recently. Those peppers were just placed so carefully in the display, I just could not resist taking some to my kitchen and developing a new delicious recipe. These peppers are stuffed with a very flavorful Italian mix of herbs and seasons, baked with a creamy Italian sauce and topped with a special mix of cheese. I planned on freezing the peppers that were left, however there were none left to freeze.

  6. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party. Have a wonderful week!

  7. These look fantastic! Only ever made classic style. Can't wait to try! My husband really loves rice so I was wondering what you thought of adding cooked rice to the filling and omitting the breadcrumbs? Thanks in advance for a response.

    1. Hi, to answer your question about using the rice and omitting the breadcrumbs. The rice would be find but it needs to be cooked and a little moist. The breadcrumbs serve to help bind the meat so the moist rice would take that place. Hope you enjoy the peppers and thanks for stopping by!

  8. Do you par cook the peppers at all before stuffing, like you would for classic stuffed?

    1. No I did not par cook the peppers, I never do par cook my stuffed peppers, I like all that flavor in the dish. Thanks so much for stopping by and you enjoy the peppers!
