Baby red peppers stuffed with feta, ricotta and herbs, then baked in the oven. A great side dish to any meat dish or as one of several vegetarian dishes. Adapted from the January 2006 'Australian Good Taste' magazine.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, cut the tops off the baby red peppers and reserve (or halve the full-sized red peppers); using a small sharp knife, carefully remove the membrane and seeds and discard.
  2. Place the feta and ricotta in a bowl and using a fork mash them until they are well-combined; add the parsley, dill, lemon zest and garlic, and season with pepper to taste.
  3. Place the peppers in a lightly oiled roasting pan, divide the feta mixture among the red peppers and spoon it into the peppers, replace the tops, and drizzle the peppers with lemon juice and oil.
  4. Roast the peppers in the oven for 20 minutes or until tender. If you are using halved full-sized peppers, you may want to cover the pan loosely with foil for the first part of the roasting time.
  5. Transfer the peppers to a serving dish and garnish with watercress to serve.

I used regular red peppers for this, and slightly more ricotta than called for (because I ran low on feta). Even still, it was very good. It is something I would probably make again, as it seems pretty versatile. Thanks!
