Default What To Serve With Stuffed Peppers?


I've got 6 nice red bell peppers and a bunch of bulk Italian sausage I
made. I'm googling the pepper recipes but I'm not sure what else to
make. I can make some bread and I've got stuff for a fresh salad.
I've got a package of gnocchi and several types of pasta. I can use
store bought spaghetti sauce or make a gorgonzola sauce. Or use the
gorgonzola in the peppers and use the store stuff for pasta.

I'm kinda overwhelmed and cornfuzed. What's usually served with
stuffed peppers? Is stuffed peppers even an Italian dish or is it an
American thing?

Louise turns 29 today and I'd like to make a nice meal for her.

TIA,

Lou

Since stuffed peppers typically include vegetable, meat and grain all in
one, they are really rather complete by themselves. A side of pasta
would tend to compete with rice in the stuffing as a starch. A salad
would be a bit redundant with whole peppers. Possibly a soup and some
good bread as the only sides?

No, stuffed peppers are a well known Austrian/Hungarian dish, too.
If you've got rice, tomatos, tomato paste, garlic, onion, parsley and
majoram (plus beefstock) ...
If you need a recipe, just holler (and tell me how the bulk Italian
sausage is flavored).

Cheers,

Never thought of it as being an Italian thing, Lou. Mom made them and
stuffed them with the same mixture as she used for holubky (cabbage
rolls) -- ground beef, rice, onions, seasonings, cooked atop the stove
with tomato juice poured over.

I'd enjoy most any starch with them -- potatoes (diced and fried?),
halushky, gnocchi. I don't see a spaghetti noodle with them, though.
Got any pirohy on hand? That'd be good, too. Green salad. Cole slaw?
We know I'm not a gourmet cook; my tastes are pretty simple and basic.
Some good rye bread would be nice.

I don't think there is anything Italian about stuffed peppers. There are
either the European versions or the Middle Eastern versions.

Its pretty much a complete meal since it has meat, starch and vegetable.

Peppers stuffed with a sausage, rice, onion, tomato, etc. mixture are
pretty self sufficient. Make a little extra rice, and focus on a
dessert for her birthday. -aem

I think it's an everyone thing. My family is from Saudi Arabia, but
we don't make it at all the way I've seen other recipes for stuffed
peppers. We use ground beef or lamb, rice, parsley, onion, garlic,
cumin, coriander, salt and pepper and stuff the peppers with that.


Meat, rice and seasonings stuffed into the pepper is very much the same
as they are done in many regions. The exact meat and seasoning vary, but
the fundamentals of the dish are very much the same all over.

I would prefer something more special for my birthday dessert than
apple and cheese.

Stuffed Peppers and a beautiful tossed salad...fresh dinner roll, an
Merlot would be good....followed by my personal favorite, chocolate
cake and coffee with Bailey's.

I suggest serving in courses as that would avoid what to have with the
peppers. For presentation on the plate, I would place the pepper on some
additional rice with sauce overall. And definitely end with a killer
dessert. Something nice and rich. Start with cheese and apples and a
crusty bread. Not too much. Get a really nice wine.

I tend to think of them as eastern Mediterranean or
eastern European more than Italian. (Unless they are
stuffed with fish or shellfish, in which case I think
of them as Spanish, Catalan or Basque).

However I have seen them in Italy.

Anything peppers (all kinds of peppers) is definitely Americas. What
to serve with stuffed peppers is based on with what your stuffing
contains. Most folks stuff peppers with a meat n' rice combo and
include a sauce... really only needs a salad, beverage, n' dessert. If
you omit the rice (as I do) then you may serve a starch with your
meat and vegetable dish... with stuffed peppers I happen to like a
garden salad and/or three bean salad served with potato salad... I
prepare potato salad often, I don't think of it as company or picnic
fare. Btw, the potato is Americas too. There really isn't much
attributed to Italy. The Eyetalians are all the time attempting to
hijack, but then they do excel in pickpocketing and whoring.

Green salad and a big old bottle of Chianti should do nicely.

I don't think it's Italian. Every response I've read to this thread
assumes rice in the stuffing. That's how we make them, but if you
don't, then that certainly affects what to have with it. We stuff ours
with hamburger, rice and a little onion. It is flavored with chili
powder and there is tomato sauce. For that, we find that corn goes well
with it.

That's sweet of you, Lou. It's not every day that a woman turns 29.

Thanks to you and everyone else who responded. Seems bread is the
winner so I've got a loaf going and I'm going to make a gorgonzola
sauce. Should be a nice simple dinner.

Thanks to all.
