8NOTE: Because this recipe is almost 25yo, this is how I've tweaked it. I cook the EMPTY peppers on hi power for 3 minutes to start the tenderizing process. Otherwise, when the peppers are tender in the original recipe, the meat is overcooked. I use green, red, or yellow peppers. I use pasta sauce of choice in place of the liquid called for the meat mixture. I use italian seasoning, instead of just oregano.
