Roasted Peppers

My grocery store has an area where they put slightly damaged produce on a huge sale. To my surprise, they had bags of yellow and red peppers in an absolutely perfect condition marked 2 for $1! You know I had to buy a few, okay, 5 bags.

Came home and decided to roast them (after calling Anna for advice). Here is what you do: wash the peppers, take the stickers off, rub with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in a pre-heated oven at 450 for 40 minutes, turning half-way through.

Don't they look gorgeous? I used some in my lasagna (see the post above) and also made home-made hummus using one of the red peppers: delicious!

These will also be good in salads, on sandwiches or pasta. Such a great buy!
