Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Cut across tops of tomatoes, leaving one side attached to form a cover. Scoop out pulp. Chop pepper tops and tomato pulp and add to mixture.

Prepare any other vegetables you wish to stuff by hollowing, parboiling cabbage leaves, etc. I prepare very large amounts of this and cook all together. The combined flavor is wonderful.

Arrange everything in baking dish, cut sides up. Mix remaining ½ can tomato paste with some water and pour around vegetables to a depth of one or two inches. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until rice is tender. Baste toward the end with cooking water, squeezing some into each vegetable. I recommend large batches. It freezes well for great future meals.
