Very good side dish. The peppers in the garden right now are beautiful. This was a great way to use them. I love the idea of stuffing them with the potatoes!

I liked this very much, not just for the taste but for the presentation ideas. I made changes, but the overall concept is lovely and versatile. I used a red pepper as the potato holder and did not parboil. Instead of pouring tomato sauce in the dish before cooking, I added butter to tomato paste and then split the pepper, covering with that paste. Thank you for giving me so many ideas about potatoes and peppers! I will follow your instructions next time I have the proper ingredients!
