Stuffed Italian Red Pepper : A Makeover With Leftovers

Most women would be thrilled shopping for clothes and shoes. These days, I feel the same when I visit the farmers market. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into growing the produce we consume. They might be priced higher than the regular grocery store but, it gives me great satisfaction to meet the people who grow the produce. They are so cheerful, very generous and friendly. It is very relaxing to visit the farmers market every weekend and pick the veggies and fruits that my family and I enjoy for the rest of the week. This week, the peppers were very fresh and colorful and I picked a few to prepare stuffed peppers.

The peppers are useful as they act as an edible bowl or pockets. The colors they come in make them absolutely appetizing and photogenic. When it comes to stuffed peppers, there are a zillion recipes out there.The recipe is with the leftover rice and sauteed veggies, toasted bread, cheese and cherry tomatoes.
