  14. Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole

    We started making this recipe as a traditional stuffed pepper, with the filling placed inside the pepper. However, it was difficult to get the peppers cooked enough and the filling didn’t want to stay inside the pepper anyway. So we tried making it as more of a casserole instead which...
