Ingredients for 8 people:

  • 3 bell peppers
  • 3 Tbsp of green sauce (see recipe here
  • 1/4 lb of canned tuna
  • 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 4 Tbsp of milk



  • Wash and dry the peppers
  • Prick each whole pepper with a fork in several places, then lay on a foil covered cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 400F for 40 minutes or until done
  • Place the roasted peppers in a paper bag, roll closed, and let cool
  • Carefully remove the skin of each pepper and slice them into pieces, each at least two inches wide
  • In a bowl with a fork mix together the green sauce, canned tuna, breadcrumbs and milk
  • Cover the interior side of each slice of pepper with a generous lining of sauce. Then roll


There are different versions of this recipe and I love how simple is this one. Buon appetito!
