The flavors of traditional stuffed peppers, in a jiffy!

"Stuffed Pepper" Meatballs

Last week I decided a bit too late in the day that I wanted stuffed peppers for dinner.  Now, mind you stuffed peppers aren’t difficult by any means, they are just a bit time consuming to throw together, and they take a while to bake.  At 4 P.M. I didn’t have that option, unless of course we wanted to eat dinner as a bedtime snack.  So I decided to make them “meatball style,” sort of how I make my Porcupine Meatballs.  They were AMAZING!
