This is the sort of easy dish that can lend itself to any Mediterranean vegetables, think finely diced aubergine and courgette and do experiment with fresh herbs. Serve with toasted bread for a quick lunch or a light supper. The garlic should not be finely chopped otherwise it will char and burn whilst baking giving an acrid taste. I try and to leave the stalk on when halving the peppers, purely for decoration. This would be a quick and easy dish for students to try on any of my Dofe Courses.
