  • 2 red peppers

  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 shallot
  • 50g pecorino cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves

  • 50g green olives, pitted
  • 200ml passata (pureed, sieved tomatoes)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt

  2. Wash, halve and deseed the peppers. Using 1 tablespoon of olive oil, brush the inside of each pepper and sprinkle lightly with salt. Put the peppers cut-side-up in a roasting tray and roast for 15 minutes or until they begin to soften.

  6. Add the passata and a little water. Turn the heat down and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Drain the rice and dress with the tomato and basil sauce. Add the olives and pecorino and season with a generous grinding of black pepper.
  8. Spoon the rice mixture into the softened peppers and drizzle with the remaining olive oil.
  9. Return the peppers to the oven for a further 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and chop the parsley.
  10. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
