Nice filling soup! I was able to use 4 small green peppers from our garden to make this. I only had one can of tomato sauce so I added a small can of tomato paste and one small can of water. Also instead of canned diced tomatoes I uesed about 1 1/2 cups of fresh diced tomatoes. Great topped with the mozzarella cheese.

This is, for me, a great start. I totally love Stouf....'s stuffed peppers and am seeking to duplicate that taste. I shall add some sauteed onions and may try a bit of sugar in my next attempt (or in my leftovers). As is, it's lovely. (Ah, also, I used a red and an orange pepper--I couldn't find my green peppers.)

This is so great to make when you don't have much time but have a craving for stuffed peppers!! At first, I thought there would be too much sauce, but turned out to be just the right amount!! Might add some Tabasco or hot peppers next time to add a bit of kick. This was a wonderful weeknight dish! Thanks bmnichol! :)
