Summer Stuffed Peppers ( Peperoni Ripieni)
I only grow red, yellow and orange varieties. When I can't grow them, I look for them endlessly at local markets. This recipe, is an easy, traditional Summer recipe that my mom always prepared during the Summer season. With very few ingredients, the flavor of the pepper and basil is intense. I am suspicious that this recipe has some Neopolitan roots as it was originally covered in Tomato sauce. It is always delicious. The meat stuffing is infused with the sweet peppers. I couldn't wait for the timer to go off and dig in.
