  1. I love bell peppers! Any color, but especially the yellow ones! I love stuffed peppers, and I like that this recipe includes rice as part of the stuffing. Kind of like rice stew, but within the peppers! I’m sure the parsley, black pepper and garlic add a lot of flavor as well! I’ll definitely try this out! Thanks for sharing!
