Stuffed pepper in tomato sauce


Stuffed pepper in tomato sauce is classic Hungarian family favourite, called Töltött Paprika. We normally use long yellow Turkish-style peppers for the dish, but I find that red/orange bell pepper provides more texture and a sweeter taste. The dish is made in three stages – first you make the tomato sauce, then the stuffing, and finely you simmer the stuffed peppers in the tomato sauce. For this reason, I normally use leftover bolognese sauce or make enough stuffing for other dishes. This is not the classic recipe, as I’ve adapted it to my family’s liking. Nevertheless, it’s still very delicious.
