    When they say Classic, they mean Classic. This was just like my mom's. The only change I made was that I do not serve the rice in the meat. I cook it separately and then add it to the tomatoe mixture and eat it on the side.

    Could use clearer direction..... 1 uncooked instant rice? Is that a cup? a box? one grain of rice...lol I am guessing they mean 1 cup

    Opps! Kate, it looks like you spotted a computer glitch! It should actually say 1/4 cup rice. I have edited the recipe to include this information. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    @'Kate, I'm sorry you were unhappy with the results. Perhaps if you added a little more sauce and used 80/20 ground beef, you'd find it less dry.

    Stuffing peppers with left over pasta & sauce is great. If you need additional liquid, try covering with clamato juice it adds a great flavour.

    We have used ground turkey and substituted salsa in place of pasta sauce with good success. My son suggested steaming or grilling the peppers top side down in place of boiling. We think they are more flavorful. Great dish and a regular at our house.

    I didn't like this recipe. I like to have the meat and the rice already cooked before putting it into the peppers.
