      I decided to give this a try despite what I feel to be a recipe that doesn’t provide as much detail as I’m accustomed to for preparation. Thankfully I’m not an extreme novice in the kitchen so I made assumptions that the onion should be chopped and the sausage chopped up as well. It would have been nice to know what size bell pepper to buy (I ended up buying 6 and I’m glad I did because that was more than plenty given that my peppers were a bit on the large side) There’s a typo in that the ingredient list calls for parmesan cheese but the process mentions mozzarella cheese so I’m glad I took a look at the process before buying the ingredients.

      Now to the fun part. I didn’t add mushrooms because I’m not a fan and quite honestly I didn’t feel it needed it. I ended up getting sweet sausage vs. the mild italian because the mild italian they had was chicken and I really wanted the pork flavor. I also while the meat was cooking, combined the chopped tomatoes, sauce and spices vs. adding them individually straight onto the meat and onion mixture. I felt the spices would blend better with the sauce and then be easier to mix with the meat.

      I must say after finishing up one of the stuffed peppers that this was absolutely delicious. The flavors do remind me of a meat lovers pizza minus the dough crust. I can’t wait to have the rest for lunch this week!
