I thought this was an interesting and unique recipe for stuffed peppers! I loved it! My husband, ahhhh, sort of only because he didn't really like the peppers, but he did like the stuffing. I read the reviews and changed a few things. I did blanche the peppers like other reviewers said. I did not use celery because we are not fans, but replaced it with yellow onion which was delicious. I also used about 1/3 lb of ground beef and a 1/4 lb ground sausage - which was really flavorful. I also cooked the rice first in my rice steamer...I never have good luck with "uncooked" rice in a recipe. It was fine, I just added it at the end and let it all simmer for 10 minutes.
I wanted a side dish and made polenta...yum!! It was a perfect compliment to the peppers and it all tasted good mixed up together.
I did have left-over stuffing because I only stuffed 4 peppers so after a few days when the stuffing was all yummy and marinated, I added a jar of marinara sauce, cooked it up and served it over spaghetti...THAT my husband loved!!
I would actually make this again but as a creamy bolognese sause over pasta.
