    Mirj's Note:

    This appetizer is very trendy right now in Tel Aviv. It's a modern Mediterranean-style dish that bridges the gap between traditional Middle-Eastern and contemporary European food. Serve with hunks of country-style bread.

      This is great and very easy to make. Everyone enjoyed it! I served this as a side dish with salad, humous and stuffed vine leaves. Lovely! Will definately make again.

      Scrumptious on its own, but I was in a pinch for dinner, so I ended up using it as sauce for spaghetti. My DH raved! Here's the shortcuts I took: used marinated sun-dried tomatoes which was a big time saver, 1/2 t dried thyme, canned tomatoes. I also added more sugar and vinegar, and threw in some oil cured black olives (wrinkly kind) that I pitted with my handy dandy olive pitter. Thanks for posting this versatile recipe that's bursting with flavor!

      I made this for dinner last night as a side, except I roasted the pepper, halved the recipe, added in chopped mushroom stems and stuffed the filling in the mushrooms. Kept well overnight in the fridge (I did prep work the day prior) and I think the flavors married well. I quickly baked them for about 7 mins at 350*F and sprinkled some fat free feta on top. The results: UNANIMOUS - BETTER than the MAIN dish!! NEXT time, I'mm make the full recipe, stuff portabellas, and serve as the main. Yum! Yum!! YUM!!! And healthy too!
