Step 1

For sauce: Heat oil in a heavy medium skillet over medium heat. Add green onions and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add tomatoes; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens. Season to taste with salt.

For peppers: Heat oven to 375 degrees; grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish with olive oil. Make a 2-inch slit along side of each pepper. Scoop out seeds and gently pull out white pulp with your fingers. Rinse and pat dry.

Mix kale, basil, salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese strip and 1 tablespoon kale mixture in each pepper. Arrange peppers in a single layer in prepared dish, filled side up. Pour sauce on top. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, until lightly browned.
