Stuffed Peppers in Preparation for a Hurricane

We are waiting for Hurricane Irene and had a busy afternoon putting everything away outdoors that could potentially become a projectile object. We also have a bounty of tomatoes, peppers, and basil from our own yard and the CSA. How to feed a hungry bunch? Stuffed peppers!

Stuffed Peppers

feeds 4

4 bell peppers, any color, cut in half lengthwise and deseeded
8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1.5 cups tomatoes, cut into chunks
1/4 to 1 cup basil, depending on your love of it, thinly sliced
1/3 cup olive oil
2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 teas. salt
1 teas. pepper

Preheat oven to 375.

Place peppers in a baking dish or cookie sheet, cut side up.

Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. Divide among peppers.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until cheese is melted and starting to bubble.

Eat and wait for hurricane.
