Tasty stuffed capsicum.

Top Review by Engrossed

We loved this different stuffed pepper! I used 1 red bell pepper cut in half lengthwise, only enough olive oil to brush the peppers with and barely pour over them, part-skim ricotta, grape tomatoes halved, red onion diced, 1/2 of a lemon's zest, 1 garlic clove and 1/8 cup fresh basil. The filling just filled the pepper halves. These were creamy and flavorful. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
