Ingredients

3 large red bell peppers
8 sun-dried tomatoes (packed without oil)
3/4 cup boiling water
4 ounces light cream cheese, cubed and softened
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice

2. Combine tomatoes and boiling water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Drain.
