Italian Stuffed Peppers w/ Rice, Veggies and Mozzarella

You can’t imagine how good these Italian stuffed peppers taste when filled with a delicious combination of rice, mozzarella, and colorful vegetables.

They are quick to bake in the oven and you can use any vegetables you have in the fridge, any type of cheese (here are some good mozzarella substitutes) and a few tablespoons of cooked rice. The result is simply wonderful!

Let me show you how I prepared these goodies.
