Stuffed Italian Pepper
The lady from Florida who wanted
stuffed pepper recipes: this is my
favorite recipe my Italian grandmother
made: You have to judge the amounts
depending on how many peppers you make.
My grandmother never measured.
Green peppers ( I like red ) I usually
make 4 and I slice mine in half .
Day old (or more)
Italian or French bread is great. Pull
the bread apart with your hands and
quickly soak it in running water and
squeeze our the excess water. Then
proceed to crumble it apart in bowl. For
4 peppers I might use about a half loaf
--you have to judge.
Approximately 1/2-3/4 cup chopped onions
. Saute onions in olive oil
black olives, I crumble the olives with
parmesian or romano cheese,
about 1/2 -3/4 cup
(approximately Tablespoon) I use a
mixture of Italian seasonings.
parsley, salt and pepper and some garlic
After sauteing onlions in
olive oil, add to crumbled bread. Add
all of the above and mix well. (Taste to
see if you need more seasonings. Drizzle
more olive oil over bread mixture. Taste
and add more oil if desired.
Place peppers in casserole and fill with
stuffing. Drizzle a little more oil over
top. I usually pour a little chicken
broth or water in bottom of casserole.
Put in oven (350-375 degrees) and bake
approximately 45 min
see if peppers are done. If you feel the
peppers aren't done enought for your
preference, then cook a little more. You
may want to drizzle more olive oil on
top while they're cooking.This is my
favorite way to enjoy stuffed peppers.
Let me know if you try it .
