  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Combine the feta, garlic, parsley, and pepper in a bowl and mash together with a fork to form a smooth paste.
  2. Cut the stem end off the peppers. Using a melon baller, remove the seeds and membranes from inside the peppers, then stuff with the feta mixture. Brush with oil, then pack tightly into a small baking dish. Spoon the remaining oil over the top and bake for 20 minutes, until the peppers are tender. Serve hot.
  • If you can't get fresh piquillo peppers, use some from a jar and drain well before using.
