    Amazing. I cut down on the oven cook time by about five minutes and used red and yellow peppers. Delicious.

    Wow this is really good! I used Morningstar veggie crumble and Bragg sprinkle seasoning instead. I didn’t top it off with cheese.

    I made this last night and oooohhhhh myyyy goodness!!!! It was soooo good. Ok so groind fennel is extremely hard to find in Charlotte so I just got savory seasoning. And I have pork so I substituted for italian chicken sausage. This was soo flavorful and delicious. First time making something like this. Leftovers were even better!!

    I thought they were a little dry. I used pulled pork with rice a roni Spanish rice, chopped onion, and Parmesan cheese wish I had not let all of my moisture evaporate from rice first. Simple to make no matter what.

    This was okay, but the filling ended up being a little dry and it didn't have as much flavor as I had hoped for.

    Very good meal. I halved the italian sausage and added some ground beef as the italian sausage was too strong alone. The family didn’t like the whole peppers so second time I chopped two peppers and made a casserole with additional vegetables and the family loved it.

    great recipe! ended up with bigger bell peppers so had a little extra room. added a layer of pasta sauce before adding the mozzerella, was absolutely delicious!

    I used hot ground turkey instead of the sweet. My husband does not like sweet ground turkey. I also used red bell peppers and doubled the amount of turkey and spices. Turned out great!

    Good, but needs little more flavor!

    This is the second time we’ve made this recipe. We love it we used a bit more Parmesan cheese. We also tried regular Miss and Alice it on top. great recipe

    Delicious but I'll prob use less oil next time

    I used microwaveable brown rice and orange peppers, and it turned out delicious. I also used whole fennel seeds because I couldn’t find ground. I think the mozzarella added on top didn’t add enough to the dish to merit purchasing it special.

    Delicious! Thanks to reading all of the directions first, I was able to decide to bake the peppers separately first. I also mixed in cheddar cheese rather than Parmesan, because that’s what I had. So tasty!

    I made a bunch of these for work and people loved them. I did use hot Italian sausage instead because I appreciate an abundance of flavor ... I also tried the vegetarian version and added black beans, and lots of seasoning. It came out great.

    Lovely! I used breakfast sausage instead because that's all I had around.

    Soooooo good! I was emptying out my fridge and had some bell peppers and mushrooms left so I decided to make this. Excellent recipe, easy, quick and yummmy!

    The stuffed peppers were one of the best I have had and were very easy to make. The Italian sausage adds a nice depth of flavour- I did use hot sausage from our Italian specialty store as we like the spice. This is one of the few stuffed pepper I like to make. Also, reheats well for lunch the next day. I change it up by using a slice of provolone cheese and melting that on top if I do not have mozzarella.

    This was delicious! My family loved these stuffed peppers, and I have some picky eaters. We will definitely be making these again and again!

    Such a satisfying combination of flavors! Such a quick dish to make that's both healthy and filling. I love bell peppers to begin with, but the Italian sausage, rice, and onion really raised the bar! Would highly recommend for anyone looking to try something new and eat a little healthier.
