Stuffed peppers with new potatoes, feta and pesto... by River Cottage...

Doesn't matter if you are a vegetarian or not, you should like this dish! At my home we try and eat a "meat-free" dinner at least few times a week, not once. This was a great lunch, but in my opinion it would be an amazing idea for a starter (if you give only half of the stuffed pepper per person - they are filling!) or a main dish for a dinner party for one of your vegetarian friends. You have literally only 4 ingredients here, but the combination of them works so well! I just loved it and will make it again, again and again in the future :) Oh, I've used good quality shop bought, ready made green pesto, as I have to admit of being a little bit lazy to make my own - but you can always make your own...!

How to make it...
- 200 g small new potatoes
- 4 red peppers
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 200 g feta cheese
- 4 tablespoon green pesto
- salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200 C. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the new potatoes and boil for 8-12 minutes, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly. Halve the peppers length ways and remove the seeds and pith. Brush the outsides with olive oil, then place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Halve or quarter the new potatoes and place in a bowl. Cut the feta into 1cm cubes and add to the potatoes. Toss both with the pesto until well combined. Spoon the filling into the halved peppers and bake for 40-45 minutes until browned on top.
