two stuffed romano pepper halves on a black plate with a black knif and fork resting on it

Stuffed romano peppers with courgette, mint and feta

These stuffed peppers have come a long way from the stuffed peppers I grew up with in the 80’s! Sweet romano peppers stuffed with potato and courgette, cool mint and sharp feta cheese create a flavour and texture sensation. This dish is perfect for a starter or light lunch when you feel like bold summer flavours.
