Cut bell peppers in half, removing the seeds and pith and arrange in oven safe dish or roasting pan. Drizzle 2 Tablespoons of olive oil onto peppers. Place peppers in oven and set timer for 20 minutes.
While peppers are roasting, grate 1/2 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Mince 3 cloves of garlic.
Add cheese and garlic to a mixing bowl along with 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/8 tsp pepper flakes, and 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Mix it all up.
Remove peppers from oven when timer goes off. Add seasoned breadcrumbs to each pepper. Drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp of olive oil on to each pepper.

Use any color pepper you like, though I think red taste the best.
