  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Brush the peppers with ½ tbsp oil; season. Put cut-side down on a baking tray; bake for 20 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, put the stuffing mix in a bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water. Mix well; set aside for 5 mins. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry spoonfuls of the stuffing for 6 mins, breaking it up a little with a wooden spoon, until golden. Add the tomatoes and fry for 3 mins. Stir through the rice and fry for 2 mins or until heated through. Remove from the heat, fold in the spring onions and parsley, then season.
  3. Turn the peppers and fill with the stuffing mixture. Crumble over the cheese, then bake for 10-12 mins until the filling is piping hot. Serve with salad, if you like.
