    This sounds really easy and good. My kids have never had stuffed peppers. I think they would really like this plus this sounds easier to re-heat leftovers.

    Can you clarify the rice. Is that normal rice or minute rice?

    Any uncooked rice will work after being fully, normally cooked, whether quick cooking, or just regular dry. Brown rice dry and raw normally take almost double the time to cook. I use seasoned yellow dry raw rice. In this particular case I used a regular long grain white and wild rice blend.

    Okay detail on the rice. I buy 2types in 3lb plastic containers. This one was called a "garden harvest blend" it is almost like a general pilaf blend. It has long grain white rice plus wild rice, and an assortment of dehydrated veggies plus herbs. However ANY Rice will do. You just need approx 3 cups of cooked rice.

    MM34, please do NOT buy that rice! I pay less than $6 for 3 lb and consider it a luxury item. Any rice will do just fine.​

    I ran out of Italian cheese blend so I shred some cheddar on there. Probably won't do that again. This is the casserole prior to baking.
