Recipe Notes

20160201_141300

The recipe was easy to follow and read. The ingredients were readily available in my kitchen, except for the bell peppers. Shopping for the peppers was easy as they are available year around.  I chose a rainbow of green, yellow and red peppers adding a variety of flavor to the stuffing.  I used a jar of home processed spaghetti sauce, however commercial sauce is most commonly on my shelf.

Preparation was fun and quick. I may blanch the peppers next time depending of the density of the vegetable or just bake a bit longer to assure a tender rather than crunchy shell.

Either way I will keep this recipe gets a thumbs up for family meals, gatherings, and entertaining.
