This version is without prosciutto, but with some balsamic glaze drizzled on top before serving. I loved the cheeses, onion and green peas mixture, also I added several crushed garlic into the sauteed onion; and these stuffed peppers came out creamy, smooth and full of flaovr. The balsamic glaze added extra sourness and sweetness, which was perfect with these stuffed peppers. The recipe can be appetizer, side dish or a delicious snack.
