Italian Stuffed Peppers
(Adorable Broken English)
One of my favorite things that mom used to make was Stuffed Peppers. OMG I can taste them now. She would have me go out to the garden and pick a half dozen or more of those beautiful vegetables. Then I would watch or help her prepare the stuffing. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
In fact visually they were tasty if that makes any sense. In fact I better stop writing and thinking about this because the more I do the hungrier I get. This is just another of those wonderful recipes from back in the day that makes me thank God for our Mothers and the wonderful things they made for us growing up. Thanks Mom and Thanks to Chef Pasquale for sharing his method for making Stuffed Peppers.
Stuffed peppers is a dish that exists in different names and forms around the world. It consists of hollowed or halved peppers (typically bell peppers), filled with any of a variety of fillings, often including meat, vegetables, cheese, rice, or sauce. They are usually assembled by filling the cavities of the peppers and then cooking.
Stuffed peppers in Italian cuisine is a dish where bell peppers (often the green, yellow, and red varieties) are typically filled with a stuffing such as ground beef, mixed with bread crumbs or cooked rice, eggs, herbs, and spices (especially paprika and parsley) and cheese.
Recipes vary but often include the removal of the seeds of the pepper, boiling them, stuffing them, covering them with cheese, and baking or alternatively cooking them on the stove top at a slow simmer in canned tomato sauce until the peppers are soft. A sauce may be served with them, usually a tomato sauce, but this, too, varies greatly depending on the region.
