I love stuffed peppers and was craving them on my low carb diet. I fooled around a bit and came up with these. I promise, they're so flavorful that you won't even miss the rice. Enjoy!

Tasty recipe. I did change the parmesan by just adding it into the meat mixture. It gave it a fantastic flavor. I also chopped us some fresh basil and added it to the mix as well. The cooking time was a bit off though as after one hour the green pepper still had a little too much crunch. I might take it out another five minutes if I make it again.
