pulp, leaving a shell with walls about 1/4 inch thick. Set the pulp aside
and discard the seeds of the peppers.

Stuffing: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Saute the onion until

currants, herbs, salt & pepper. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes to soften the

stuffing and set them tightly side-by-side in a baking dish just large
enough to hold the vegetables snugly. Add enough water so that the liquid
reaches halfway up the sides of the veggies.

Sauce: combine theh olive oil, lemon juice and sugar in a small bowl and
popur over the stuffed veggies.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes or until the veggies are soft and
the filling is cooked through. To serve, carefully remove the stuffed
veggies from the baking dish, freeing the bottoms from the pan with a
spatula, and transfer them to a serving platter.
