This made for a great evening light dinner I roasted 1 medium red and 1/2 orange capsicum/pepper over the gas flame and following the recipe I finished the cooking in the oven at 375C for 15 minutes to melt and brown the cheese and left the capsicums as is instead of halving and thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank you Teresa made for What's On The Menu tag game at FF&F.
