This is my husbands all time favorite stuffed green peppers casserole dish.  I love it too because it is easy to make and really good.  The key to this recipe is to layer the casserole like a lasagna.  It makes the peppers soft and very easy to make.  It also lets the peppers absorb the flavors of the other items so it tastes really good when your done cooking it.

  1. are you sure 9x9x3 inch dish? or 9x13x3?

    1. I made it in a 9x9x3. But if you want a thinner layer you could use a larger pan.

        thank you- I have multiple glass baking dishes : 9×11 up to 10×15 -haha wouldn’t you know?I’ll figure something out.

  2. delicious! Highly recommend!

  3. Kinda frustrated that you didn’t note the rice needed to be cooked before being put in the oven….I’m new to casseroles and now it’s ruined ?

    1. Sorry, you’re having trouble. My rice was not cooked when I put it in. It soaks up the liquid and cooks while it is covered with the foil. It naturally steams the rice. Hope that helps!
