Stuffed Pepper Casserole

If you have been around here a while you know how much I love stuffed peppers! I will turned them into about anything —

soup, meatballs, meatloaf —and  of course the traditional stuffed peppers.  I have made them chipotle style and philly cheese steak style.  I seriously love them so much!

A couple of weeks ago, I was ready to make stuffed peppers using some of the fabulous peppers from my son’s garden.  He had picked all of them right before it got cold.  He had LOTS of them.  They were beautiful peppers, but they were really long and skinny, I wasn’t sure how I was going to stuff them.  So, I sliced a bunch of them and made my stuffed peppers casserole style instead!

I layered rice, meatballs, tomatoes and peppers in my dutch oven, and baked it up.  It was AMAZING!

Next time give it a try and see what your family thinks!
