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

Piccadilly tomatoes 6, without the peel and cut into pieces with their vegetation water

salt and pepper

extra virgin olive oil

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 place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook for 30 minutes or until soft and, outside, toasted; then turn off the oven and leave the peppers inside until cooled. Gently, remove the top of the peppers, then empty them of water and peel them. 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 a little of the leftover mixture and bake at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving rolls. But are great, just great, the next day. Bon appétit!


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 Rosarose produced by the Paolo Leo wineries (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.

Ok, is it okay now.
Pepperoni rolls made last Friday for dinner with mother-in-law…of those that” I can do anything I”, with your Eggplant caponata, which is incredibly easy to make and very good.
Well…at the end he chewed, he chewed, and he didn't say a Word. Before leaving he pathetically stuttered something like that “had no doubt” about my kitchen. Big smile, etcetera etcetera.
Thank you (Although the mother-in-law I honestly don't give a damn)

That laughter that you made me do! This whole ' mum's kitchen’ is truly a smash, I'm glad your mother-in-law apparently didn't find anything to fault! And I'm so glad you liked it all. Ultra happy. Until next time, and say hello to her mother-in-law! ADA
