One of my favorite recipes. I minus the orzo add a bit more feta. Everyone I've ever made it for goes back for seconds. Even the boss's wife was like " I'll never make stuffed peppers without feta again!"

Husband liked it but I didn't. Unless he specifically asks for it, I doubt I will make it again.
