Stuffed Bell Peppers

Print PrintShare with Friends


I compiled this recipe the other night after finding 3 recipes that I liked. None had exactly what I was looking for so I combined the 3 and this is what I got. I had to add the 3rd can of sauce because I like to spoon a little over the top of my peppers when they are done.
