Ingredients for Stuffed Peppers (Capsicums)
- 4 Medium to Large Capsicums (Bell Peppers), Red, Green, Yellow
- Cream Cheese
To prepare the delish stuffed capsicum
- Pre-heat oven on to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Farenheit)
- Core the Bell Pepper's (Capsicum) by cutting around the stalk, ensure you remove all the seeds and the bits the seeds hold on, whilst keeping the capsicum intact.
- Mix the spinach, garlic (to taste), thyme (to taste) and rosemary (to taste) it to the cottage cheese.
- Dice the tomatoes, place them in the first layer at the bottom of the capsicum. Add a layer of cream cheese (as prepared in step 3) A layer of mushrooms A layer of cream cheese (as prepared in step 3) A layer of olives Repeat until final layer of cream cheese tops the stuffed bell pepper.
- Cover with foil (it keeps the cream cheese soft, however if you want it a bit crispy don't cover with foil) Place in pre-heated oven
- Variations: Add Lamb in a layer, I'd recommend pre-cooking it first. Cook up some Rice or Cous Cous and add that to step 3.
