Stuffed Romano Peppers

Life is getting back to normal this week after spending all of June so far writing reports and having my Knight in Shining Armour at home  sick.   I’ve been enjoying pottering in the kitchen again not just heating ready meals.   This is one of my favourite quick supper recipes – the peppers just melt in your mouth – and as an added bonus it’s gluten free.

  2. Lightly coat with olive oil
  3. Put in a hot oven 190o for about 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon the Bolognese sauce  into the pepper.

Delicious on their own or with salad and pasta.

This is my cheat’s recipe for healthy, thrifty Bolognese sauce.

Quick Bolognese  Saucebolognese

400 g      lean minced beef

1 jar        Dolmino Light Bolognese sauce

100 g      dried red lentils

½ jar      water

  1. Brown the mince  – no need to add extra  oil.
  2. Stir in the Bolognese sauce.
  3. ½ fill the jar with water and add to pan.
  4. Stir in the lentils.
  5. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Add extra water if required.

When cool, I usually divide the sauce into 4 portions for freezing.
