Tomato Stuffed Peppers

Tomato Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients  

Cooking spray
4 large red bell peppers
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons chopped calamata olives
4 medium ripe tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375F. Coat a large, shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

Cut the peppers in half lengthwise, removing the seeds but leaving the stem. Although the stem is not edible, it looks good in this dish and helps the pepper retain its shape. Place the peppers cut side up in the baking dish.

Divide the sliced garlic and olives evenly among the peppers. Cut each tomato into 8 wedges and put 4 wedges into each pepper half. Drizzle each stuffed pepper with a little oil and season with a few grinds of pepper.

Roast the peppers until they are tender and beginning to brown around the edges, about 50 minutes.

Serve immediately.
