Ingredients

1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
or canola oil
2 ½ ounces prosciutto
thinly sliced, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces, or pancetta, or bacon
*
1 each onions
minced
¾ cup ricotta cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup peas, frozen
thawed
*
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*
24 each sweet bell peppers
baby, about 2 1/2 inch long, or as needed

Directions

Put the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350℉ (180℃).

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.

Stir in the prosciutto and cook, stirring constantly until brown and crispy, about 6 minutes.

Remove the prosciutto with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Stir in the onion and cook until translucent and soft, 4 to 6 minutes.

Set aside and let cool for 10 minutes.

In a medium bowl, mix together the onion, pancetta, cheeses, and peas.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cut ½-inch from the stem-end of the peppers with a paring knife.

Remove the seeds and veins.

Using a small dessert spoon, fill each pepper with the ricotta mixture.

Arrange the stuffed baby peppers on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 16 minutes until the peppers begin to soften.

Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 to 6 minutes.

Serve warm.

Quite good, a bit fiddly to stuff the baby peppers but quite tasty. I felt that adding some fresh basil or mint would brighten the flavor a bit or perhaps add some balsamic glaze. Nice light creamy stuffing and the peas added some nice texture. Overall a great presentation and dish that would be sure to please your guests. They could be prepared in advance, even the day before and then popped in the oven.
