I made this recipe for a potluck and all of my friends loved it. The variety of colors, from the peppers to the stuffing, makes this dish beautiful and appetizing! Also, it is quite easy to make and, even though it is low fat, it is very filling. I recommend accompanying this entree with a light salad and a grain other than rice. This recipe came from one of my favorite cookbooks,

These are really tasty! It's worth it to spend extra money on the pretty-colored peppers for this dish because they look so pretty.

Awesome simple recipe. I admit that I did not follow the recipe exactly (recycled some vegan meatballs in white wine sauce I had made previously and used plain canned plums instead of stewed tomatoes) but all the ingredients were pretty much the same. Just like mom's (without the meat)! Make extra and freeze them for later.

Very delicious! I added steak seasoning which added a very strong kick! Very impressive looking with a variety of red, yellow, orange and green peppers. Also, I cut the tops off and used them as lids for an over-the-top presentation! Thanks!
