Stuffed peppers are a creative dinner idea. Peppers are delicious when roasted in the oven, and stuffing them provides you with so many opportunities to give them an original twist. Why not try a lamb stuffing with mint and garlic, or stuffed peppers with rice, vegetables and ground beef? You can also use the idea of stuffed peppers and apply it to other vegetables, like tomatoes, zucchinis or small pumpkins and squash.
