There are so many modifications you can make to this dish, here are a few. Using wild or black rice will add a lot of texture, you can top with breadcrumbs and grated parmesan, add some caramelized inions and deglaze the pan with a splash of wine or brandy, add mushrooms (a favorite of mine but a deal-breaker for some…) Let me know what additions you end up making and hope you enjoy!
Steps to make these stuffed tomatoes and peppers
How do you make stuffed tomatoes and peppers?
