Easy Stuffed Peppers Casserole recipe from Served Up With Love

Stuffed Peppers has always been a favorite of mine. I don't really remember my mom making them when we were growing up but my mother in law did. I was always super giddy when I knew that is what she was making for dinner. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and when we started dating neither one of us had a car.

My parents and his parents, and friends, and whoever we could get would take us to each others house. I always loved when his mom would make stuffed peppers. It was my absolute favorite time to visit. I always made sure that was the time I came over to his house.

Fast forward 30 years later and both sets of parents are now gone. I have been super blessed to have both my mom and his mom's recipes in my possession. And one of those recipes is for her stuffed peppers. I have yet to make her recipe for stuffed peppers. I know they will never have all the love she put in hers. My only hope is that when I do make them, I can feel some of her love around us.  I simply adored her.
