MY REVIEW

Quick, easy and really good. I did add about a Tbsp of minced garlic and we melted mozzarella on top before serving just like we do with real stuffed peppers. This will definitely become a regular go to quick meal.

This is a fabulous way to get all of the flavor of stuffed peppers without all of the time and effort. I like to use leftover rice and reduce the liquid and cooking time for an even faster result.

Definately a Keeper! First time around found it to be a bit bland - Added some Steak Seasoning & fresh garlic to veggie's - mmmmm

This one somehow finds itself repeating itself in our household too :)
