I've always believed that lunch should be just as tasty, inspiring and colourful as any other meal - it's still a key part of your day right? However, sometimes I desire a lighter meal, particularly in the warmer seasons, and these stuffed peppers are perfect for those sunny days.
I strongly believe that it is so important to use the freshest ingredients possible here, if you can. Being a relatively small combination of different foods, if you can go for the best possible types of each one then each flavour will truly blend together so much better and, trust me, the result will be SO worth it!
I always make my own pesto (recipe coming soon!!) and use this in the recipe, so I would advise you to get a similar variety. The texture of these types of pesto will mix so perfectly with the giant couscous, and will just taste exceptional with the cherry tomatoes. These two flavours alone will transport you to a dreamy Italian island on a warm summer's day, what more could we want?
What is also great about this dish is that they keep so well. Warmed up and served with a delicious Italian salad, they last for another two days and keep their fabulous texture, although I always add an additional spoonful of pesto, just to be on the safe side!
These Mediterranean-style stuffed peppers are such a hit, and a delicious choice for a lighter lunch. Filled with a sage-infused, cheesy and salty pesto mix, they will transport you to a dreamy Italian island with their gorgeous colour and flavour!
