Blistered Peppers With Tomato, Mozzarella And Pesto

Ingredients:

2 large red or orange peppers (or one of each)
Olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
12 pomodorini or grape tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
Small buffalo mozzarella balls to taste, torn into chunks
4 Tbs fresh pesto

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 200C/400℉.

2. Cut the peppers in half lengthways, remove the seeds and ribs, then rub them all over with a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the tomatoes with some oil and also season with salt and pepper.

3. Heat a heavy roasting dish or ovenproof pan on the stovetop until hot. Put the halved peppers, cut edges down, into the pan and sear them until blackened along their edges, then turn over, add the tomatoes alongside, and slide into the oven to roast for about 10 minutes. The peppers should still be a bit firm and not quite cooked through.

4. Divide the tomatoes and garlic among the pepper halves (arranging 3 in each) and add a few pieces of mozzarella. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a splash of olive oil, then return to oven until the mozzarella has started to melt. Spoon a little pesto on the filled peppers and serve with bread to mop up the juices.

Serves 4
