4 Cheesy Stuffed Peppers
using4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs OR
4C Gluten Free Plain Crumbs AND
4C Homestyle Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese

1/4 cup plus 4 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups 4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs OR
4C Gluten Free Plain Crumbs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup store-bought antipasto
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped
3/4 cup freshly grated asiago cheese
3/4 cup 4C Homestyle Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
4 bell peppers
1- 14.5-ounce can stewed tomatoes, coarsely chopped or mashed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large saute pan, heat 1/4 cup olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, 4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs (or 4C Gluten Free Plain Crumbs) and parsley and cook, stirring often, for 5-8 minutes until the 4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs (or 4C Gluten Free Plain Crumbs) are golden and beginning to get crispy. Transfer 4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs (or 4C Gluten Free Plain Crumbs) mixture to a large bowl and add antipasto, capers, asiago, 4C Homestyle Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese, salt, pepper and cayenne. Mix together well and set aside.

Cut and clean peppers. Remove the seeds and white pithy ribs. Stuff each pepper half with filling, pressing to make sure it gets into all the nooks and crannies.
Coat the bottom of a large oven-proof dish with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Pour approximately 3/4 of the can of tomatoes into the dish and spread into an even layer. Arrange stuffed peppers evenly on top of tomatoes.

Spoon any remaining tomatoes evenly over the tops of the peppers. Sprinkle with remaining 4C Whole Wheat Plain Bread Crumbs (or 4C Gluten Free Plain crumbs) mixture, and drizzle the remaking 2 tablespoons of olive oil over top of the peppers.

Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until the stuffing is hot, the cheeses are melted and the peppers are tender. Serve immediately. Serves 4 as a main course, or 8 as a side dish.

Top with sprinkle of Homestyle Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese and serve.
