Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) whole wheat macaroni
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Canadian Ricotta
3 tbsp (45 mL) taco seasoning
2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
1/4 cup (60 mL) fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped

6 bell peppers, your choice, cut in half and seeds removed
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

In a large quantity of salted boiling water, cook pasta according to package instructions but cook for 1 minute less. This will keep the pasta al dente. Drain in a colander.

Preheat the oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

While the pasta is cooking, mix Ricotta with taco seasoning, lime juice and coriander in a bowl. Add cooked macaroni, kidney beans and Havarti. Season with salt and pepper to taste

Stuff peppers with the preparation and place in an oven-safe dish. Cover with foil and cook for 20 minutes. Remove foil and cook a further 15 minutes.

Serve warm with salsa, green salad and avocado.
