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!

This was good. Didn't us the topping. Will make again! Had to cook a little longer, peppers will be al dente.

I just made these, and they were great! I added some red pepper flakes when I added the other herbs. I think that it would have been a little bland without it. I also put 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the dish and covered it with aluminum foil and baked at 400 for 30 mins and then put a mixture of panko, parmesan and butter on the peppers and put it under the broiler for a few minutes. They were perfect!
