  • 1.

    Place the peppers in a baking tray and roast them in a pre-heated oven of 180ยบ for approximately 20 minutes.

    Place the peppers in a large bowl and allow them to cool (cover the bowl with cling-film allowing the skin to separate from the pepper). Once cooled peel off the skin, discard the seeds and cut the pepper in half (length ways). Place them on a chopping board ready to be stuffed.

    In a frying pan, shallow fry the porcini, chesnut and oyster mushrooms in the olive oil until soft. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cool. In a large bowl, mix the ricotta with the mustard and then add in the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Once ready put the rolled peppers on a baking tray, sprinkle with the pecorino cheese and grill for approx. 5 minutes. Serve them immediately with some mixed salad dressed with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
