Vegetable & Beef Stuffed Red Peppers

I love making this stuffed pepper recipe. It's one of the few ways I can get my husband to eat veggies. Make it meatless by replacing the beef with eggplant and adding more vegetables like mushrooms or squash. You can also replace the rice with barley, couscous or even orzo. —Jennifer Zimmerman, Avondale, Arizona

Whatever you call it, there's enough in the recipe to bake one casserole and freeze the other for up to three months. Did we mention Cumberland pie is a cousin, but with bread crumbs on top? —Marcie Brooks-Smith, Fort Collins, Colorado
