READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Yogi8

A different stuffed pepper. The chunks of melted cheese in the orzo are so good! If you like your peppers very tender, steam or roast them a bit before filling.

Intersting, even though it requires a bit of work. I used small shell pasta and mozzarella cheese and it worked pretty well, but I thought it could do with some more flavour and definitely some more salt. The pasta shells didn't seem to be quite cooked in the end, but it wasn't really noticable. This dish makes a nice presentation!
