Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Stuffed Peppers 

This is one of my all time favorite recipes.  I love to make lots of them and freeze left over portions.  Although, these do not last very long in our house.  There are lots of different variations for this including make the same exact stuffing and roll in cabbage.
