    Overall, it was decent. It was a bit of a challenge getting the peppers seated securely in the baking dish because of cutting them length wise instead of the traditional way. Half of them wanted to lean over, spilling out the stuffing...That was a bit frustrating.

    These turned out delicious! I added Minced garlic and some chopped up brown onion and they where great! My mother also enjoyed them and we would both eat them again! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    I really like this recipe. I used 6 bell peppers, white rice, meat free mince and fresh thyme abd parsley for to top. It turned out perfect. I used only mozzarella since I didn't had parmesan but it was pretty great regardless.

    This was great. I did parboil the pepper halves for 2 1/2 minutes as they were pretty thick.
