“I made this recipe for a potluck and all of my friends loved it. The variety of colors, from the peppers to the stuffing, makes this dish beautiful and appetizing! Also, it is quite easy to make and, even though it is low fat, it is very filling. I recommend accompanying this entree with a light salad and a grain other than rice. This recipe came from one of my favorite cookbooks,”
