"An healthy meal with veggies. You can use brown rice if you prefer. You can add tomato sauce to combine rice and veggies. From the issue of September 2006, Coup de Pouce."

    I think I must have done something wrong here, as this recipe was not a hit at all. It certainly felt healthy and chock full of veggies, but the filling was somewhat bland and I thought more of a sauce was needed. One of the few recipes that I have decided not to make again.

    Oh, these were so YUMMY!!! Some of the best stuffed peppers we've had. :) I halved the recipe, used brown rice, and used fresh romano instead of parmesan because that's what I had. Thanks Boomette!

    Very good! Because I had leftover rice, I did vary this recipe slightly. Sauteed the onion and garlic, added my leftover rice, 1/2 cup water and the oregano and warmed it up basically. Then I added to the rice mixture--the tomato, creamed corn (as that is what I had), pepper, and parmesan. I omitted the salt. This technique for stuffed peppers was unique but worked great for stove top cooking. Thanks Boometter for sharing. Made for Went to Market tag.

    It was a nice way of using up some fresh veggies, but I found the final result a bit bland. If I make it again, I'm going to add tomato sauce to the rice mixture.
