Ingredients:

  • Sweet and/or spicy banana peppers
  • Soft goat cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil or grapeseed oil for drizzling

Directions:

  1. Slice peppers longways on one side and remove stems and seeds
  2. Flatten fresh basil leaves along length of inside of each pepper (use 1-2 leaves per pepper)
  3. Spread 1-2 tsp goat cheese on top of fresh basil leaves inside each pepper
  4. Arrange all peppers in a baking dish and drizzle with oil
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  6. Roast on top shelf of oven for 30-40 minutes until peppers are browned and soft

Tips

Another variation on this recipe is to mix soft goat cheese with pesto instead of using fresh basil leaves.  And you could potentially use other herbs as well.
