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! Please let me know what you think. "To Your Blessed Health and Beauty"! EdieJane
