A family recipe, from my daughter Annalisa, who first posted the photo on Facebook, and received immediate raves, asking her for the recipe.  Her sausage stuffed peppers turned out so good,  I decided to share her recipe with all of you! 

This recipe is a simple 2 step process.  First, cook the crumbled sausage, and second, stuff the peppers and bake.

    Scrumptious! I love these as they're a proper meal with tons of flavor – sometimes I find the vegetarian ones a little bland! Can't wait to dig into one!
