“My Husband tends to have these wonderful ideas of the things that his Mother used to cook for him. He describes as best he can , and I create as best I can, and more in favor of my own taste of course. These turned out beautifully, and although never the same as Mom, my husband enjoyed them. Oh, and don't ask him who cooks better, because you'd never get a straight answer. As in most stuffed pepper recipes it's important to pick your peppers for this specifically, ones with flat bottoms so that they'll stand up while cooking in the oven. I used Basmati Rice, since it was what I had on hand at the time, of course I'm sure that almost any rice would work. I made way too much stuffing the first time I made this, any leftovers, make a decent stuffing for tomatos as well, even a side salad for another meal, it gets better with a little time. I prefer my Peppers cooked and slightly soft but still crisp, length of time in the oven is according to preference. Always an option to sprinkle with cheese about 10 minutes before done as well.”
