Recipe by Diana Adcock

Really good-a lighter version of the beef stuffed ones.

Top Review by Alison U.

Instead of rice I used quinoa. I used ground pork instead of turkey. I used cheddar cheese, and added two eggs. I put in about a large handful of chopped mushrooms, sautéed with onion instead of tomato, and a small can of tomato paste. I used thyme instead of oregano. It was worth the cooking time for a healthy and delicious meal!
