Preheat the oven to 200°C

Cut the tops off the peppers (but keep them) and pull out the seeds and the flesh. Fill a baking tray with water up to 3cm. Pop these in the oven straight away so they can start to cook while you prepare the rest.

Add passata and lemon. Stir it all through and leave on heat until the lamb is cooked.

Once lamb is cooked, stir in cous cous.

Take peppers out the oven and fill them with lamb cous cous, crumble feta on and put the tops of the peppers back on.

Cook for 20mins, then take them out and drain water from the pan.
