      Tried this last night and my husband, who doesn't really like sausage, had 3!! Really loved adding my fresh basil to this, and the cheese was a great touch. I did drain my sausage before I added the garlic. I also did not have minute rice, so I waited till I had cooked the liquids down and then stirred in cooked rice. Keeping this one!

      The mozzarella cheese really makes this a fantastic stuffed pepper. There is enough meat/rice mixture to make 6 stuffed peppers. I only added 1 teaspoon of hot sauce. The basil was my first harvest from my new AeroGarden. I misunderstood and use cooked rice. So with stock and tomatoes in the pan, I thought there was going to be to much liquid so I added 2 handfuls of Minute Rice. I now know Austin was talking about a Minute Rice type of 'pre' cooked rice. I forgot to add the mozzarella cheese, so I added it after it was baked. I just parted the rice mixture in the center of the pepper and stuck a big slice to it. Then into the microwave for 1 minute. Great pepper, I'll be making this again.
