I love to make stuffed peppers and have tried a few different kinds, even greek - but never italian! These look absolutely delicious! A great way to change up an old favourite! I would probably leave out the veggie meat, but might add in some quinoa to boost the protein. This would be great served with a salad or even a side of pasta! I wonder if anyone has tried to freeze these? They'd be nice to have on hand in a pinch!
