    Pa. Hiker's Note:

    From a Greek Orthodox church's food festival. I always enjoyed it, and I hope you will. The lamb makes this different from normal stuffed peppers. NOTE: If you don't like the tomatoes, use 8 bell peppers and substitute a 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes for the pulp (you will still have to mash them).
