Grandma Perri's Stuffed Peppers
70 mins (prep 10, cooking 60)
14 ingredients
6 servings
My Italian grandmother made these all the time, and it was the only way I knew stuffed peppers as a child. All of my aunts and my mother made this recipe and, when my mother became disabled, she taught my father how to make them! Over the years, I was introduced to traditional stuffed peppers with rice and broke with family tradition. However, I find that lately I am craving the peppers of my youth, so I consulted with my aunt and my father's written recipe to recreate this comfort food. Although ground beef is my grandmother's original ingredient, my mother did convert to ground turkey, which works just as well. I have made these twice now in the past week, and they are just as I remember them! They are very nice served over spaghetti or rice.
