Cutting peppers into thick rings results in an easy-to-eat entree with more stuffing in every bite.
When I shop, I play a silly game at the check-out counter of guessing what people are going to make from the items in their carts. For example, the other day the woman in front of me was buying ground beef, rice, bell peppers and cheese. I said to her, "Stuffed peppers, right?"
She nodded, and we exchanged recipes. Mine, of course, was vegetarian; hers made with red meat. Here's my recipe for vegetarian Basil-Stuffed Red Pepper Rings.

Bell peppers lend themselves perfectly to vegetarian stuffings.
