  • Place peppers in a shallow microwave-safe baking dish. Microwave uncovered 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; set aside to cool.

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped pepper tops; saute 2 minutes. Add rice; saute 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes. Stir pepperoni into rice. Cover; simmer 2 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir in spinach until wilted. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Drain peppers; stand upright in same baking dish.

  • Spoon rice mixture into peppers; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through.
