Roasted Peppers Parmesan

Roasted Peppers Parmesan are sweet roasted peppers filled with bacon, sun dried tomatoes, and parmesan cheese. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with fresh oregano for a healthy, easy, tasty dish

We are so excited when our lovely fresh peppers ripen in the greenhouse and garden.  Dave starts the pepper seed as early as he can, and babies his pepper starts through the spring.

He carefully transplants and nurtures them through summer and into late Fall. He’s picked up some useful tips about growing peppers over the years.

Dave’s success in the greenhouse is beyond belief! We have overflowing baskets of peppers all over the house from Fall to New Years.

Several gallon bags are dried or roasted and frozen (Learn how here). Lots more homegrown peppers are in our chili  and my Roasted Pepper Cheese Fondue sauce.

The Roasting Peppers we use: 

Our homegrown fresh pepper supply dwindles away after the first of the year. We use our frozen and dried peppers in the long winter and early spring months. It’s a long dry spell from fresh peppers every year.

Greenhouse Krimson Lee Peppers. These Are The Peppers I Roasted And Stuffed For This Recipe.

greenhouse Krimson Lee peppers. These are the peppers I roasted and stuffed for this recipe.

Krimson Lee Peppers are a really good roasting pepper. They are sweet and have a heat scale similar to pasilla peppers. And when they are in season we have a LOT of them.

I’m always thinking up new pepper recipes. Recipes that use garden peppers are not that easy to find. These are not sweet bells. They need to be treated differently.

Making meals from all these beauties is my challenge. I welcome it. This recipe is my own inspiration. It’s SO good!

I have been dreaming about roasting peppers and filling them with an excellent parmesan cheese, our Homemade sun dried tomatoes and drizzling them with balsamic vinegar…and fresh herbs. 

That’s how this recipe came into being.  Just a bit of kitchen tinkering. It turned out fabulous!

Roasted Pepper Parmesan Is An Excellent Recipe For Peppers Straight Out Of Your Garden. Any Good Sized Roasting Pepper Will Work Great In This Pepper Recipe.

A delicious light lunch! This is an excellent recipe for peppers straight out of your garden. Any good sized roasting pepper will work great in this pepper recipe.

TAKE NOTE: These are a very flavorful but mild roasting variety. Krimson Lees can have a bit of heat raw. Deseeded and roasted they sweeten up and give that unique smoky roasted pepper flavor a sweet bell pepper CANNOT give!

  1. Roasted peppers make a tasty dish. This pepper recipe takes about 20 minutes tops! You can make these for a large crowd easily.
  2. Serve these as a fantastic side dish, light lunch or appetizer. The peppers can easily be grilled if you would rather.
  3. Roasted pepper recipes are versatile. But you want a smoky pepper and the roasting heat to concentrate the flavor and get a sweet smoke result.
  4. The Recipe Card has complete instructions on how to roast peppers. I roasted four Krimson Lee peppers this time. Any poblano, hatch or pasilla roasting pepper will do fine. Even Jalapenos will work.
