susan stuffed bell peppers unstuffed


this was my mom's basic recipe for stuffed peppers that i have significantly altered and chosen to "unstuff". i always found that the sauce didn't permeate the meat when i stuffed it and it wasn't as flavorful. i tried this recipe unstuffed when i had way more meat than peppers but didn't want to waste the meat. i've tweaked and tweaked and came up with this. my husband (the stuffed pepper hater) loves this! it's also the only meal that my 2 and 4 year old ask for 2nd's and 3rd on! to me...it's total delicious comfort food. yes, this isn't traditional stuffed peppers. but i think you may even like this one a lot better! i choose to microwave the green peppers for a bit to ensure they are nice and soft but you may add them to the pot with the meatballs and cook them that way if you choose. this is best served over white rice. hope you enjoy!
