Sausage Stuffed Peppers

A few months back I scored a subscription to Redbook magazine for $5 on It has paid for itself in spades because I've gotten some yummy recipes from it such as this one that I bring to you today.

My husband devoured his and finished off the ones 2 of my kids wouldn't eat. My oldest loved it and 2 days later even asked me when I could make them again. I LOVE hearing things like that from my kids about things that I make!

I had left over stuffing mix and my husband took that to work for lunch. Boy, I sure got mileage out of this recipe!
