Stuffed Bell Peppers with Minced Beef

The title to this recipe does not really do this beef mixture justice. I have taken the combination of garlic, onion & courgette and married that with a touch of white wine, tomato puree & some delicious Hungarian paprika powder I have. 

I then take the already roasting peppers and line with fresh basil & pinenuts. Add back the beef mixture, some more pine nuts and top with grated cheese. Pop back in the oven and away you go….it really is delicous
