  • In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients for the peppers, except the peppers. Adjust seaoning to your taste.
  • Cut the very tops off the peppers and remove the seeds and pith from the insides. You may need to trim a very small amout of the bottom to help them stand up on their own.

  • Bake in a 350 degree oven, I used a loaf pan for mine.
  • For crisp peppers bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  • For a more tender pepper bake covered for 45 minutes, uncover and bake for 20 more minutes.
  • When the peppers for almost done prepare the 1 1/2 cups tortellini according to package directions. Drain and stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Serve the pepper in the center of plate surrounded by the tortellini.
