  • 6 Ontario Greenhouse Mini Peppers
  • 3/4 cup (180 mL) prepared macaroni and cheese
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional garnishes: parsley, green onion, diced tomato


  1. Wash the peppers, cut in half, remove seeds and ribs. Trim a very thin piece off the bottom of the peppers to allow them to sit upright in the baking pan (be careful not to make a hole as the filling may fall out).
  2. Fill the centre of each pepper half with approximately 1 tbsp (15 mL) prepared macaroni and cheese. Top each half with 1 tsp (5 mL) shredded cheese.
  3. Bake in preheated 350ªF (180ºC) oven until the pepper is softened and the macaroni and cheese is bubbling.
  4. Remove from oven, cool slightly; garnish if desired with one or all of the optional garnishes.
