6 large red peppers
100 grams of stale bread crumbs
50 grams of grated pecorino siciliano PDO
50 grams of grated Parmigiano Reggiano PDO
provolone, diced small, to taste
Piccadilly tomatoes 6, without the peel and cut into pieces with their vegetation water
salt and pepper, to taste
extra virgin olive oil, to taste
a sprig of parsley
a few leaves of fresh basil
a clove of garlic
a handful of capers
To prepare the rolls of roasted peppers, Preheat oven to 200 degrees static. Wash the peppers and wrap one by one in aluminum foil, then put them on the rack of the oven and cook for 30 minutes, then turn off the oven and leave the peppers inside until cooled. Then remove the aluminum and, gently, remove the top of the pepper, then empty it of the water and peel it. Then split them into roofs large enough that you can roll up on themselves.
Place in a bowl the breadcrumbs, grated cheeses, parsley, Basil, garlic and chopped capers, the chopped tomatoes with their vegetation water. Season with salt, pepper and add as much oil as needed to obtain a soft and grainy.
Cover each flap of pepper with the mixture and, gently so as not to break ground, roll the peppers on themselves, then arrange on a lightly greased baking dish of extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle the peppers with a little oil, a little salt and possibly some of the advanced mixture and bake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving rolls. But are great, just great, the next day.
MATCHING: The sweetness of the Roasted Peppers, the savory taste of the filling with a sparkling Rosé from Puglia. We suggest with this recipe the combination with Shamsur produced by Paul Leo (in San Donaci, in the province of Brindisi). It's a brut, based on Negroamaro, Lightweight (11,5% ABV.), that smells like strawberries and berries, taste pleasantly fruity.
