This is really different from every stuffed pepper recipe I've ever tried. Don't let the fact there's no meat scare you off. It's delicious and filling. If you MUST have some meat, try adding some crumbled cooked bacon to the mixture but it's fantastic made vegetarian style. Even my picky teenager liked it!
