It was time.
Rather than make them how she did stuffed with chopped meat, I found a recipe for Stuffed Peppers with Rice and Lentils.Ingredients:The stuffing:
Alterations to recipe:
1 - I used canned mushrooms instead of fresh.
2 - I used Arborio rice instead of long-grain rice.
3 - I used plain old lentils instead of red lentils.
4 - Always, more garlic than what is listed.
5 - Stuffing tasted a bit bland so I added some Locatelli Romano and a pinch of red pepper flakes - I am Italian after all.
Verdict: Not like mom's. While delicious, it wasn't savory enough for me. Next time, I will make mom's.
Mom's is always better :)
