Growing up, my mom made stuffed green peppers a lot. I'd always ask her to make extra "stuffing" because that was really the only part I liked. She'd serve me the pepper and I'd scoop out the inside, put extra cheese over it and then eat it. When Todd and I got our own first house, I just followed my moms recipe, yet after the meal, there sat Todd and I's green peppers that neither of us touched. Yes, we both eat like a 5 year old child!
So one day Todd asked why I didn't just make this into a casserole. He said he's probably like the peppers better if they were mixed in. He figured he liked green peppers on a pizza, but it was because it was all mixed in. So I search all over the internet but found nothing that was exactly like my moms, so I came up with my own. It's super simple, yet delicious and semi healthy at least. Luke LOVES it now too!
