Roasted pepper s'mores

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Whole roasted peppers; peeled
½ pounds Fresh mozzarella
1 bunch Rosemary
\N \N Coarse salt; to taste
\N \N Freshly ground black pepper; to taste
3 teaspoons Olive oil; plus more

Cut the mozzarella into rectangles that are 1- by 3-inches and ¼-inch thick. Using a paring knife, gently cut ¾ of the way around the top of each pepper, leaving a hinge. Carefully remove the seeds and drain the liquid from the peppers. Cut core seeds from the top of each pepper. You will be left with 6 seed-free whole hollow peppers with attached lids.

Insert one piece of mozzarella into each pepper. Follow with a small sprig of picked rosemary, salt, pepper, and ½ teaspoon olive oil. Close the top of each pepper with attached lid. Heat grill to medium-high. Place peppers on grill and cook, using tongs to rotate, until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat and transfer to serving platter.

Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Serve immediately. Serves 6. Comments: You can substitute almost any combination of cheese and fresh herbs to create your own version. You can roast the peppers a day ahead and have your ingredients ready before guests arrive. The s'mores can be made as whole peppers, or in "cocktail size" -- served on skewers.
