The meat should well receive a first cooking and take on a little flavor before being taken to the oven. In any case, it is always recommended placing with a resistant container with water or a tray so that the peppers do not dehydrate so quickly.

Another indicator is the browning of the Parmesan cheese, when it begins to take color it is time to turn off and leave in the oven. Remember that this also depends on the large amount of peppers.

Although many choose a tray, it is better to have a mold with high edges that covers the paprika so that it does not cook as quickly. Those for cakes can also be used as long as the paprika maintains its shape and does not knock down the filling.

As there are four peppers, you could consider 4 servings and easily expand the amount for more people. Consider that according to the variant you can choose a smaller paprika that suits the diner or the term.
