The addition of garden veggies such as mushrooms, zuchinni, onion, garlic and tomato make these Stuffed Peppers not only delicious but good for you too!

My husband and son both work in commercial masonary construction and between the two of them can sometimes eat all 8 peppers in one sitting :)

You can cut this recipe in half easily if you don't need to feed a crowd... or two starving constuction workers :):)
