I received several messages from young housewives asking me a recipe for stuffed peppers. Undoubtedly, being a food so agreed by the Romans in the culinary repertoire of experienced housewives must be many, many variations of this kind. My version of stuffed peppers think it’s the simplest possible inherited the good and very, very little changed. As it did good my stuffed peppers on the plate, so I make myself on the stove, the oven did not ignite even more because this is the food of the season, so it is in the middle of summer when it’s hottest hot and I do not think stuffed peppers should be cooked for hours, like cabbage rolls, bass that are in our Banat says “wires in piparca” (ie stuffed in peppers: P). Good, so if all appeared by gardens, and the market, peppers beautiful, Romanian production, not to waste time and we started a good portion of stuffed peppers.
