  • Everytime I make this I always feel completely satisfied. Today I didn't boil the peppers, covered with foiled and baked for 40 minutes. The longer baking allowed for juices to really come through. - 5/31/12

  • It's in the toaster oven right now, finishing up - I tasted the mixture, though and it's YUM - substituted quick cooking brown rice from Trader Joe's and it worked out great. Also used soy sauce instead of Worcestershire and it doesn't seem to have messed anything up. Thanks!! - 3/13/12

  • I made this for dinner tonight and it was so good! But I changed it up a little to fit my liking. I did not use all the tomatoes suggested I just 3/4 cup tomato sauce (60 cal), no worcestershire sauce, did not boil peppers, and I mixed in some Parmesan and topped with pepperjack... - 1/16/12
