To serve:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C/160 ̊C fan/gas mark 4.
  2. Cut the tops from the peppers and pull out the seeds and membranes. Rub the outsides of the peppers with olive oil and place in a baking dish that fits the eight of them snugly, so that they all stand up unaided.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the onion. Cook for 5-6 minutes until softened, then add the garlic, oregano and basil and cook for one minute longer.
  4. Add the mince and season with salt and black pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes until no pink parts remain, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Stir in the tomato sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Stir in the cottage cheese and Parmesan and season to taste. Spoon the mixture into the prepared peppers and top with the Mozzarella.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the peppers are soft and the filling is bubbling. Serve with garlic bread and/or salad.
