Halve peppers, depip and place on a baking tray.
Grill until skin begins to blister and blacken.
Remove from oven, and place in a plastic bag for 15 minutes to help loosen the skin.
When cool, peel away charred skin, roughly chop flesh and drain in a sieve for 15 to 20 minutes.
Whizz tomatoes in a blender until roughly chopped, then add garlic, chilli paste, vinegar and Italian parsley.
Blend until smooth.
Add peppers, cottage cheese and lemon juice and blend again.
