In my family, we each have a great stuffed pepper recipe. This recipe is a simpler version of my Aunt’s stuffed pepper recipe. It’s not a hard recipe, but it sure is good.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Wash and hollow out peppers; dry insides.
In a bowl, mix rice pilaf with bread crumbs. Add Italian dressing and 3 tablespoons of the Italian tomato sauce; mix well.
Add sausage and grated onion to pilaf mixture. Mix again, and then stuff the peppers.
Spray a large pan with olive oil spray, or spread olive oil to coat. Pour ½ cup Italian tomato sauce over the oil.
Place peppers in the pan and pour remaining 2 cups of Italian tomato sauce over them.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees for one hour.
