    4 sweet bell peppers, mix of red and yellow and orange
    1 cup arborio rice
    Olive Oil, 3 tbsp
    2 ripe tomatoes, or one small can
    Feta Cheese, 1 cup cubed or crumbled
    salt and pepper
    chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as Italian parsley, oregano, chives


Put rice, some salt and 1 1/2 cups water in a heavy pot, bring to a boil, cover and cook on very low heat for 20 minutes, then take off heat and let stand for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut peppers in half, and put the 8 halves cut side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake at 400 F for 15 or 20 minutes until the skin is starting to blister. When ready, put 1 tablespoon of oil in the bottom of a glass or stoneware baking pan, and place the peppers cut side up next to each other. Turn oven down to 35o F.
Also, at the same time, put 2 tablespoons of the oil into a pan and saute the chopped tomatoes with salt and pepper and chopped herbs until tender and liquid.
Mix the rice with the tomatoes, add the cheese, and pile it into and on top of the peppers. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 30 minutes.

    Made these for dinner last night. THe flavor was good, but they were a little dry. I will try again using a bit more tomato or tomato juice. Thanks for sharing! - 11/2/09
