*Reviewed for Australian NZ Recipe Swap Adopt a Joey for August 08* These baked capsicums were wonderful-absolutely loved them. I think my capsicums were quite large....so only had enough filling prepared to fill five of them. I used a 400g tin of diced tomatoes as that was what I had in my pantry. The filling was great in these and the capsicums baked up to be juicy and sweet. Loved them. Photo also to be posted
