Stuffed Italian Pepper

Stuffed Italian Pepper Recipe
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.
Red or 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
1 can black olives, I crumble the olives with my hands
parmesian or romano cheese, about 1/2 -3/4 cup
Italian seasonings (approximately Tablespoon) I use a mixture of Italian seasonings.
little parsley, salt and pepper and some garlic powder

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

Check to 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 .
