Baked Stuffed Italian Vegetables

What I like about this recipe is the ability to use multiple vegetables to stuff. You can use bell peppers - green, yellow or red. You can use tomatoes or even stuff an eggplant by cutting it lengthwise and then scooping out the insides. You can really add more herbs like some fresh basil when the growing season permits. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
