Ingredients:

5 red peppers (cut in half, seeds removed)

2 cups flavored bread crumbs

1 can (6 oz.) pitted black olives (drained and chopped)

1 cup pignoli nuts

olive oil (1/2 cup plus extra)

2 cloves of garlic (chopped)

lemons (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  1. In a large bowl, mix bread crumbs, black olives, pignoli nuts and garlic. Mix well. Add 1/2 cup of oil. Stir. (If it’s a little dry, add a little more olive oil.)
  2. In a large baking pan, brush a little olive oil on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Stuff each pepper with bread crumb mixture.
  4. Cover pan with aluminum foil and make a hole on top. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove tin foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. (You want peppers to be tender and bread crumbs a little crunchy.)                                                                                                                                    * Optional: You can squeeze a little lemon on top when serving.
