Since stuffed peppers typically include vegetable, meat and grain all in
one, they are really rather complete by themselves. A side of pasta
would tend to compete with rice in the stuffing as a starch. A salad
would be a bit redundant with whole peppers. Possibly a soup and some
good bread as the only sides?
