    Man, I haven't had those in AGES. I know I don't have a recipe but I'll be looking for one now. Might use yellow or red peppers instead of green, tho.
    Stuffed peppers....mmm.

    vegetarian or carnivore?

    tomato sauce?

    i like to fill red peppers with rice, ground lamb, pine nuts, parsley and some middle eastern seasonings.

    sweet corn, ham, and rice works the same way.

    sauteed mushrooms and wild rice blended wih a shorter grain rice (or quinoa) ditto.

    That's why I suggested using a sweeter pepper then the green ones, Pook.

    all my pants are fancy, mj, except for the ones that aren't.

    one could always make a picadillo and stuff peppers with it, or a chorizo stuffing, or an italian meat stuffing with mozzarella and a yummy tormato sauce.

    basically make a thick meat sauce, very thick, and let it cool. freeze some mozarella cubes and then spoon the meat into the pepper, with a couple of the cubes in the middle, and more on top. cover with your favorite tomato sauce and bake @ 350 for an hour or so.

    stuffed peppers are universal; the spanish stuff piquillo peppers w/ mashed potato and cod, and the mexicans stuff banana peppers with cheese.

    Ya can't beat a good bon vivant!

    So, did you also cook your way thru one of Julia Child's cookbooks?

    So Marc, when ya gonna start writing that book? After your autobiography, you can write a cookbook. Although I, personally, would hope it would contain more than stuffed pepper recipes. I'm with Pook and Candace on this one...

    and i was going to call it 'stuffing your pepper: a universal idea'...lol.

    too many cookbooks already; i'd rather people learn technique; that way, they could make anything.

    as to my autobiography, i'm not done living the good parts yet...
