Recipe Peppers stuffed with tuna


  • 4 peppers
  • 500 g canned tuna
  • 400 ml fresh cream
  • 150 g parmesan
  • 130 g breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp. chopped chives
  • salt pepper
  • olive oil
  • 8 c. Parmesan cheese



Wash and cut the peppers in half. Remove the seeds and the white membranes and place them in a lightly oiled gratin dish. Drizzle the pepper halves with a drizzle of olive oil.


Make the filling: crumble the tuna with a fork, then add fresh cream, parmesan, breadcrumbs, minced garlic cloves and chopped chives. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.


If the stuffing seems too “dry”, add a little olive oil. Distribute this preparation in the half peppers.


Sprinkle with a tablespoon of parmesan and bake for 40 minutes at 180°C.


Halfway through cooking, cover with aluminum foil to prevent the filling from drying out too much. Serve immediately!
