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.
