- 8 baby bell peppers
- Olive oil
- 4 sticks mozzarella string cheese, cut in half horizontally
- Marinara sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Using a paring knife, cut a vertical line down center of one baby bell pepper through one side only. Carefully cut out seed pod. Repeat with remaining baby bell peppers. Place bell peppers on prepared baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil.
Bake in oven until bell peppers begin to soften, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven and place half a mozzarella stick inside each bell pepper. Return to oven and continue to cook until bell peppers begin to blister and mozzarella melts, 7-10 minutes. Serve with marinara, if using.
