Tomato paste was omitted as the recipe only called for two tablespoons and I didn't want to waste a 4 oz can.
Scaled for Likability: No, Thank You
Slop. This was no way close to stuffed bell peppers. It was a tomato sauce infused meat and rice mess. Tomato sauce over powered the peppers, the onions, the meat, and the rice. The best thing about this meal was the garlic crescent rolls served on the side. One serving each and this table and its counterparts were done. Chickens on the other hand, loved it. They are carb junkies.
