This recipe was fantastic, absolutely delicious!!! First off don't pay attention to the negative reviews because there was too much sausage. BooHoo A big part of cooking is adapting. It's true you only need half the sausage for 8 banana peppers. I knew before hand this was going to be a lot of sausage to fill the volume of the peppers (my banana were 12" in length and 2" diameter) as it's pretty obvious however, I was actually glad that I had left over stuffing. With the left over stuffing I made meatballs and paired them with fried green tomatoes for brunch the next morning. I balled about 8 sausage meatballs (2.5"-3") and poured a bit of the sauce over them, put them back in the oven at the same temperature. 30-35 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160. Others were also complaining that you don't need to boil the peppers before hand as the recipe states. This may be true but the boiling helps soften the peppers a bit to make them more pliable so they don't break while pulling back the flap and stuffing the pepper. It is an extra step but I found it worth while and I was busy cutting the veggies and preparing the sauce while this was happening so it wasn't any wasted time for me. This recipe gets a five star from me because the flavors were fantastic and I don't mind to have a little extra so I can re-purpose ingredients for more than one meal. If you have kids you can easily make spaghetti and meatballs the following night and the meatballs will be done.
