Baked peppers and couscous with garlic and herb cheese sauce

From Cookipedia

A vegetarian dish using a sauce from Philadelphia's new Simply Stir range.

I have reduced the courgettes from 2 to 1 as I think there might be a problem fitting 2 courgettes into the peppers with the cous cous as well.

Many thanks to those nice people from Philadelphia who gave their permission for us to use these recipes.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


  1. Preheat the oven to Gas 6, 200 °C. Cut the peppers in half lengthways, removing seeds and stalk and place onto a baking tray.
  2. Place the couscous into a bowl and pour over enough boiling water to just cover, leave for 5 minutes for the grains to swell and all of the liquid to be absorbed.
  3. Mix the sauce with the tomatoes and courgettes and then with the couscous and spoon into the peppers. Bake for 20 minutes until the peppers are cooked through and lightly browned.
