I have been wanting to make this recipe since the first time I saw it in "Around My French Table". However, I did not find the peppers too readily, so I sort of forgot about it. I was happy to see it on the list for September and although the peppers I found at Wegman's were from Peru (and not the traditional ones from the Basque region of France or Spain) they were quite good. I thought the filling was very tasty.
We love both capers and olives and I have been buying the tuna fish at Costco- it actually comes from Italy and was perfect for this dish. It is really more "tonno" than the tuna we typically find in the US. (I love to eat it out of the can, although Hubby insists it needs mayo)
The recipe was certainly easy to prepare, and just before serving I put it under the broiler with a drizzle of olive oil as Dorie suggested. It was delicious.
