Ingredients

  • 3 cups long-grain brown rice

  • 1 15-oz. can stewed tomatoes, drained, chopped

  2. 2. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Halve 4 bell peppers lengthwise, core and seed. Blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove; invert on towels to drain.
  3. 3. In a skillet, warm oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onion for 3 minutes. Add garlic, red pepper, diced bell pepper and zucchini; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and sauté 2 minutes; toss with rice mixture. Add half of mozzarella, if using.
  4. 4. Place peppers in a baking dish. Divide filling among peppers. Cover with foil; bake until heated through, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove foil. Top with remaining cheese, if using; bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
