  • 3 tablespoons bottled Italian dressing
  • 2 1/2 cups Italian tomato sauce, plus 3 tablespoons

  • Step 2 Wash and hollow out peppers; dry insides
  • Step 3 In a bowl, mix rice pilaf with bread crumbs. Add Italian dressing and 3 tablespoons of the Italian tomato sauce; mix well.
  • Step 4 Add sausage and grated onion to pilaf mixture. Mix again, and then stuff the peppers
