    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    Recipe is from my "The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy International Recipes" cookbook. A Middle-Eastern flair to these peppers with the addition of pine nuts, raisens and earthy spices such as cumin and cinnamon. Choose the color of pepper you wish to use -- the recipe calls for green bell peppers.
