As stuffed, roasted peppers go, this is one of the easier recipes, and the ricotta cheese stuffing makes for a nice change from the usual stuffing of rice. Plus this is a rare, healthy stuffed pepper recipe: it’s low-fat, low-sodium, low-carb — but BIG on
This recipe takes over 2 hours — but only 20 minutes of that time has anything to do with you! This is a great fall or winter dish.
This is a great vegetable side dish, that dirties very few dishes!
Admittedly, the work Quick in the title refers more to them being ready right away to eat — there’s just no way to avoid the vegetable prep that has to be done. But this is a fabulous homemade pickle, and you just can’t buy tastes like this.
