I used all red bell peppers, added 1 bunch chopped kale, 1/4 cup chopped green olives, pinch of red pepper flakes.
Easy but looks elegant!
Nice for Valentine's Day dinner :)
The filling did not bind together at all, and I think there was far too much rice, making the filling somewhat bland. At a few points, the recipe asked me to "season with salt and pepper", and I realised after the second time how much salt I was adding, which was probably to make up for the fact that there wasn't a whole lot of flavor. I would make this dish again because I like the concept, but not using this recipe, because it just wasn't what a stuffed pepper should be.

This is definately going into my go-to recipe book. The second time I made this I did add some tomato sauce with a bit of the sausage added into it along with an italian spice mixture. I found using a short grain sticky rice worked better than the long grain for binding purposes. Using the long grain rice just did not work for me, the filling fell apart too easily. I also added some parmesan to the bread crumbs and blanched the peppers for a few seconds prior to filling them.
My husband and I did not care for this recipe. Filling did not bind together and bland. Maybe a sauce would help?
This was very tasty--I'm going to make it again for sure.
