Grilled Bell Peppers with Goat Cheese (chopped Anchovies optional)

Ingredients

  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning

Directions

Core and seed the bell peppers. Cut each into six wedges, and place into a resealable plastic bag. Add the garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Toss, seal, and set aside to marinate at least 20 minutes.
