    Kit^..^ty Of Canada's Note:

    I like to use red, orange and yellow – sweet peppers for colour. Great as a side dish to chicken, turkey, lamb or pork, or as a meatless main dish. I blanche my peppers for 5 min.in boiling water as I prefer the peppers to be softer. This recipe from Foodland does not call for this.

      Mmm. These were tasty! I was surprised at how easy they were to put together! I did not blanche mine prior to stuffing and the peppers were soft enough for our taste. I used 4 LARGE red peppers. Next time I think I am going to try stuffing tomatoes! The pesto flavour was unique, but I think it needed extra garlic added to the rice to give it a kick. I will make this often!! Its a great way to use leftover rice and leftover pesto sauce.
