The football fever is on full swing...with the World Cup starting, there was more action on the TV than in the kitchen - so nothing too elaborate happened on the cooking front. I am not an expert, nor do I play, but I really enjoy watching the game.
But a good football game without good food is unthinkable (actually, anything is unthinkable without good food!) - and since pasta is one of our fixtures for weekends, I tried this variation with a little more colour to it.
3 - baby peppers, washed, dried and cut into halves
1 tbsp - olive oil
1/4 tsp - dried italian herbs
1/4 tsp - black pepper powder
salt to taste
For the Filling
1/3 cup - mini noodles, boiled
1 tbsp - cashew and walnuts, roughly broken
2 1/2 tbsp - basil pesto
25 gram - feta cheese, crumbled
- Preheat the oven to 180 degree C. Place the baby peppers in a baking tray, sprinkle the oil, herbs, salt and pepper on it and place the tray in the preheated oven and bake until almost done (approx 25 minutes)
- Mix the ingredients of the filling in a bowl and keep aside.
- Remove the peppers from the oven, add the filling and return the baking tray back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
- Serve hot.
