Sweet peppers

We discovered this recipe for sweet peppers accompanied with cured ham and goat's cheese in the picturesque fishing village of Torri del Benaco on the shores of Italy's lake Garda.
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 spoons of olive oil
1 spoon of sugar
4 slices of cured smoked ham (uncooked)
2 spoons of lemon juice
Fresh soft goat's cheese
Chives, pepper
Cut the peppers into small cubes. Put in a frying pan with the olive oil. Add the sugar and cook on a very low heat until the peppers soften and begin to caramelise after 20 min. Mix the goat's cheese, lemon juice, a little olive oil, chives and pepper well with a fork. Take a spoonful of the cheese mix, and wrap it into a slice of the smoked ham. Present on a plate accompanied by the sweet peppers.
