Mini And Cute | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

It’s grey outside and on my table there is always something colorful whatever the season.
Today I played in the kitchen and stuffed peppers, cabbage and chicken breasts, all food that require a few hours of execution and once completed I put them away in the freezer for those busy times when I can’t cook elaborate food, but I still want to eat good. I chose to feature Stuffed Mini Peppers as the easiest of the three specialities I prepared today.



Stuffed Mini Bell Peppers

Ingredients for 4 people
Mini bell peppers to fill a baking pan
Garlic, ginger and fresh chili peppers to your liking
Cherry tomatoes split in half
2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice
A hand-full of capers and fresh basil leaves
Parmigiano and salt to your liking
Extra-virgin olive oil

Cut the mini bell peppers in half and align them in a baking sheet.
In a bowl prepare a mixture with all the ingredients mentioned above.
Fill each bell pepper half with the mixture.
Sprinkle breadcrumbs over and a generous swirl of extra-virgin olive oil.
Bake at 400° F until golden brown.



This is an easy vegetable dish full of colors, and flavor.  Pair it with meat or fish for a complete meal, or make it as an appetizers and serve it with a Prosecco.
The smallest things are always the cutest! Ciao,
