This was big hit with my two daughters (4, 11) and my husband who said it was the best stuffed pepper he'd ever eaten! I followed the recipe almost exactly - but I had started following a different recipe first (then learned it was using condensed tomato soup - 2 cans!? so I quit)...I had already chopped about a 1/2 cup of vidalia onion and cooked it while browning the beef...Then, I used a bit more than 1/4 tsp garlic and onion powder - I never measure that stuff...I just sprinkle around the top of whatever Im making then mix it in...Also, I boiled the peppers for about 3-5 min before stuffing them - bake time gets reduced to about 30 min. I also sprinkled the top with parmesan cheese after I poured the sauce/Italian seasoning over all the stuffed peppers, just before baking. I also forgot to baste but I don't think it impacted the taste or moisture level...Lastly, I did not discard the tops! I chopped them up (except the stems, haha) and put it in the freezer for tacos, soups, or otherwise...Enjoy!
Made it again tonight - added a chopped up fresh Roma tomato and a handful of spinach (that I allowed to wilt in the bowl after adding browned meat), and my husband and I like food with a kick so I chopped up 1 jalepeno pepper and added it to the mix (after stuffing the peppers for the girls). YUM
