You probably have noticed that every recipe I create tells a bit of me. For Italians food is not just fuel for the body, but it has a much deeper meaning. Food is a way of sharing thoughts and feelings, it’s a way to socialize and bond relationships. Sitting around a table to eat with my family and friends was, and still remains, my favorite things in the world. While people in the world meet for a coffee, Italians meet to share times around a dinner table with a lot of food. It’s not a stereotype, it’s the truth! :)
Stuffed peppers was one of the classic recipes my mom used to make in the winter. A delicious dinner dish. To obtain a better result, she used to prepare them after lunch, just after washing the dishes. That smell of cooked peppers remained in the house for the whole afternoon. Sometimes (she doesn’t know that), in the middle of the day, I would go in the kitchen and a piece of it, and it was just amazing.
This recipe is quicker, the stuffing is different, it’s a spring version of my mom’s recipe. Instead of bread stuffing, mine is more fresh and it will make you save a lot of time. Tuna, olives, capers, tomatoes and basil leaves. Ready?
This fresh recipe is perfect for spring or summer. You can also add some anchovies if you want to add more flavor. Their taste is so strong and special, that they are perfect if accompanied with a fresh salad. I must admit that they taste even better if eaten the day after you make them. Simply warm them up or eat them at room temperature.
