I chose to make this as an entree for dinner tonight and used a red, yellow, and orange bell pepper. I cut them in half and filled them, making 6 stuffed peppers. I really liked the flavor and especially enjoyed a new way to use the couscous.

We really love our peppers so this was another great way to incorporate them into our weekly meals! I make stuffed peppers regularly but this recipe with couscous and using the mini peppers was a new twist and fun; it gave greater options for how much any of us wanted to eat. They are also great for "snacking". They were easy to grab quickly and pop in your mouth after a few seconds in the microwave.

We both really enjoyed these peppers. Mine were a little bigger than the baby peppers, and I used it as a main dish rather than appetizer. I also used pearl couscous so we could tell it was in there. Very good, and I'd do it again no problem!
