Assorted Stuffed Peppers

Assorted Stuffed Peppers

This stuffed peppers are one of my kids’ favorites. The sweet tender hearty peppers and the rich flavored ground beef stuffing with the mozzarella melting are just a wonderful balance. This can be a very yummy veggie dish if you skip the ground beef and replace it with more rice in the cooking process.

I cooked some Wild Rice as a side. It adds a good amount of fiber & carb to the stuffed peppers.
