Sweet, and tender roasted peppers……. this is such a simple recipe that anyone can easily make roasted peppers whenever they desire, and I always buy up extra sweet peppers when they are on sale to make these. They’ll keep under olive oil for at least a week although we usually eat them up long before that! These are a must for any antipasti platter. If you like a bit of spice, simply add a couple of hot roasted peppers chopped into this mixture of sweet peppers.
Note: Peppers are also great roasted over the barbeque if you are grilling meat for dinner. Just follow the same procedure.

- 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

- Wash and dry the peppers, cut off the tops, and cut in half, removing seeds and membranes.
- Place on a baking sheet and put under the broiler until the skin is blackened and blistered.
- Place them in a plastic bag and let sit for 10 minutes.
