      This was very good! I changed it a little by using brown rice (that's all I had) and I just threw the green pepper pieces, onion, and parsley in with the rice as it cooked...I also added some corn and red pepper flakes to this rice mixture. After it was done cooking, I didn't want to open a whole can of tomato sauce (I was only making 1 pepper) so I used ketchup instead. Before I baked it, I wiped some extra virgin olice oil on the outside of the pepper. Then I continued to make the recipe like normal and it was VERY good!! Thank you for posting!
