Stuffed Peppers- Grilled

Great recipe from the Boston Globe. I like it because it contains so many vegetables and I can make it ahead and finish the last 15-18 minutes of cooking on the grill the same time I grill other dishes.

Serves 6 as a side dish
1 dry pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (or quartered, if large)
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 anchovy fillets, chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
Salt and black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
cup chopped fresh basil
3 red bell peppers, halved lengthwise through the stem, membranes and seeds removed
In a medium bowl, mix the tomatoes, garlic, anchovies, 2 tablespoons oil, teaspoon salt, black pepper to taste, the parsley, and half of the basil.

Cooking Instructions

Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill on high for 15 minutes. (If using gas, adjust burners to medium.)
Grill the bell peppers open sides down until the edges char, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the peppers, divide the tomato mixture among them, cover the grill, and grill until peppers are tender but not collapsed, 15 to 25 minutes.
Arrange the peppers on a platter and drizzle with oil and sprinkle with the remaining basil just before serving hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Calories per serving: 87 per pepper, not counting extra oil drizzled in the last step.
