Follow these simple steps to create a flavorful seafood stuffed bell peppers with rice:

1. Prepare the bell peppers:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Rinse them thoroughly with water and set aside.

2. Cook the seafood and rice:

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until they become translucent. Add the mixed seafood and cook for about 5 minutes or until they are cooked through. Then, stir in the cooked rice, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well and remove from heat.

3. Prepare the sauce:

In a separate saucepan, combine the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, dried basil, dried oregano, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.

4. Stuff the bell peppers:

Fill each bell pepper with the seafood and rice mixture until they are completely filled. Place the stuffed bell peppers in a baking dish and pour the prepared sauce over them. If desired, sprinkle grated cheese on top for an extra cheesy touch.

5. Bake and serve:

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the bell peppers are tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Once done, remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
