stuffed red peppers

what you need
3 red peppers (capsicums)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 gloves garlic, crushed
50gr (1 3/4oz) butter
1 cup cooked rice
1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1 egg
1/3 cup grated parmesan
2 tomatoes, peeled seeded and chopped
1 cup grated mozzerella
2 tablespoons chopped sage

what to do
pre heat the oven to 170 celcius.
Cut the tops of the capsicums and save, remove the seeds and and wash
heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add onion and garlic and cook gently for 5 minutes.
remove from the heat and stir in the rice, butter and breadcrumbs , transfer to a bowl and add egg, parmesan, tomato, mozzerella, sage and three tablespoons of water, stir well and season to taste. fill the peppers and place the lids back on drizzle with olive oil and bake for 45 minutes or untill peppers and cooked

Why not try a variation and use tomatoes, or marrow instead of capsicums or peppers, or cous cous instead of rice.
