Peppers Stuffed with Mushrooms & Bread Crumbs
Peppers Stuffed with Mushrooms and Bread Crumbs
(Peperoni Ripiene con Funghi e Briciole di Pane)
 
 
Ingredients:

4 large peppers (preferably green bell)
10 white mushrooms chopped coarsely
2 medium anchovy fillets chopped very fine
4 cloves garlic chopped coarsely
16 pitted olives (preferably black Sicilian)
1 and 1/2 cups bread, stale pieces about 3/4 to 1 inch in size
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper 

Directions:

Place the bread into a bowl and add warm water.
 
Allow to soak for about 15-20 minutes, then squeeze out all excess water.

Cut the tops off of the peppers, and rinse to remove the seeds.
 
Turn upside down on paper towels to drain.

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Mix the mushrooms, anchovy fillets, garlic, olives, bread and olive oil.
 
Mix to coat all the ingredients.
 
Add enough water to make a loose, but not wet filling.
 
Let this sit for about 5 minutes to allow the ingredients to absorb some of the water.
 
Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix again.

Pour a little olive oil into each pepper and stuff each with about 1/4 of the stuffing.
 
Top each pepper with its original cut top.
 
Any excess stuffing can be baked along with the peppers.

Place the peppers in an oven proof casserole just large enough to hold them upright.
 
Drizzle olive oil on them and bake for 1 hour.

Serve hot or warm. Serves 4.
 
That's it!
