Italian Stuffed Bell Peppers are a classic American recipe and family favorite. This is an easy-to-make and tasty dish that can be made ahead of time or at the last minute.
When selecting bell peppers chose ones that are flat on the bottom — they stand up better while cooking.
I, personally like to use colored bell peppers rather than green ones because they taste milder and sweeter. The green bell peppers have a harsh taste because they have been harvested before they are fully ripe. The colored bell peppers taste sweeter because they have been allowed to fully ripen. You can find bell peppers in many colors depending on the stage of ripeness and the variety. Next time you are at the store look for bell peppers in the produce section. You will find orange, yellow, red, purple, brown, black, ivory and green ones.
Try serving this meal with crusty sourdough bread to soak up the juices. Adding Oven-Roasted Asparagus will result in a colorful presentation.
