Purple Hull Peas Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole

Janie Frey


Another creation that came together with ingredients I already had. Nothing goes to waste at our house if we can help it. First time I cooked Purple Hull Peas and we like them very much. Never heard of them until my friend gave some to us. I will look for them next season. Who would have thought to stuff bell peppers with peas, but it turned out quite delicious!
