Used a fiendishly hot homegrown chilli which was a mistake because it obliterated all the other flavours.

This is an amazing recipe. Amazingly simple, and amazingly tasty! We make these often, and have also seerved them at a dinner party where they went down very well with carnivores and herbivores alike. Great recipe.

This was excellent! Made it as a starter to a veggie lasagna & it was delicious! Would recommend not cooking the peppers twice as they lose to much of their shape. But otherwise a perfect dish.. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious - I substituted pine nuts with macademia nuts, which worked wonderfully and gave added crunch. I also added extra cheese and chilli. Only comment I would make is that the peppers don't really need to be pre-roasted....you really can just make em' up and shove them in the oven and this also helps the peppers keep a little bit of shape. Lovely recipe.

I think this needed a little something extra. I added some crushed garlic and LOTS of seasoning to the spinach (which i used frozen and was fine). I also added so me lemon juice and zest to the crumbs which spiced it up a bit.

I was serving as a main so put it with some pitta bread (was really nice stuffed with some of the peppers) and yoghurt with lemon and parsley stir through it)
