Halloween Stuffed Peppers

How cute is this!  Just HAD to make something for Halloween!  🙂

I got the idea from a photo I saw on the internet, so it is by no means original!  LOL!  I did make up my own ‘stuffing’ though!

Serves 2

1 yellow pepper per person

 

Stuffing

10ml olive oil

1 onion, chopped

Crushed garlic and herb

A sprinkling Woolies Puttanesca seasoning

A handful cherry tomatoes, halved

Salt and Pepper to taste

50g cooked spaghetti

About 50g cooked butternut, mashed and seasoned

  1. Fry onions in olive oil until opaque.  Add chopped cherry tomatoes and seasoning, lower heat and cook until tomatoes are soft.  Stir in cooked spaghetti and keep aside.
  2. Cut tops off the peppers and clear the pips and other ‘flesh’.  Use a pairing knife to cut ‘jack o lantern style’ eyes and mouth.  Use your own initiative. dsc_1304
  3. Boil in water for about 5 minutes and carefully remove (hot!) and drain and leave aside to cool a bit
  4. Mix mashed butternut and all the other ingredients and carefully stuff the peppers.
  5. Place carefully on an ovenplate – I put the peppers in the corners so that it ‘stands’ on its own without topping over – put the pepper tops back on and bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180C
  6. Carefully remove and serve!

    1 serving = 1.5 veg, 1/2 CC, 1 Fat
