This was my first attempt at stuffed peppers, I thought it was a good base recipe but disliked some aspects of it. After reading some reviews I decided to add some garlic in while browning the meat, also a bit of sage, and a bay leaf. I used diced tomatoes insteaded of whole because I find the look a bit more refined; also used beef broth instead of water. The rice could have cooked for a bit longer than 15 minutes , I used long grain rice and although it was cooked it stil had a bit of crunch to it . After cooking I added the cheese to the mixture, half filled the pepper and added some of the diluted tomato soup the filled the rest, topped with more tomatoe soup and a bit of parmesan cheese. I feel the tomato soup made it taste cheap, next time I will make my own tomato sauce; thats one of the main things I didnt like about it.
