3 bell peppers

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

½ cup finely grated parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 lemon, cut into wedges

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)


Preheat oven to 450°F. Remove lobes from each bell pepper by standing peppers upright and slicing straight downward, avoiding seedy centers.

Arrange pepper slices on a baking sheet, skin side down, in an even layer. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, mix together panko breadcrumbs, grated parmesan, and garlic powder.

Top each pepper slice with about 2 Tablespoons of breadcrumb mixture. Drizzle remaining olive oil evenly over the top of the peppers.

Bake until peppers are deeply golden brown, about 20-22 minutes.

Transfer peppers to a platter. Top with parsley and red pepper flakes (if using) serve with lemon wedges.
