Cheese Stuffed Roasted Red Peppers
- 3 large red bell peppers
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 6 1/4 inch slices of mozzarella cheese (approx. 6 oz.)
- 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tblsp. chopped fresh basil
Preheat grill and then place peppers on grill over medium to high heat. Grill for 10 to 13 minutes, turning occasionally, until sides are blistered and charred. Do not over cook – peppers should be tender and not too soft.
Place peppers in brown paper bag; fold down top. Let stand 5 minutes.
Carefully remove as much skin from peppers as possible. Cut in half lengthwise; remove stems, seeds and ribs. Sprinkle with salt.
Place 1 slice of cheese in each pepper half; drizzle with oil. Return pepper halves to grill. Cook an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle with basil and then cut each pepper half in half again. Serve.
