1. Preparation of Italian roasted peppers recipe
In this recipe, I will not indicate precise doses because you can easily adjust by eye based on how many peppers you want to cook. Wash the peppers and place them on a baking sheet; in this phase, the peppers must be left whole, including their petiole. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees in static mode, then bake the peppers and cook them for an hour. Every 15 minutes turn the peppers over to cook them evenly; do not worry if the peel of the pepper seems burnt … we are interested in the pulp below! After cooking, turn off the oven and transfer the peppers into a bag (a paper one like bread or a plastic one is fine), then close everything well and wait at least another hour or at least the time necessary to cool the peppers.
The steam that will form inside the bag will facilitate the removal of the peel and make the pulp of the pepper very tender.
Warm the peppers, remove the peel (it will be removed as if it were a film), the stalk and the seeds. At this point, you decide what shape to give the peppers, in broad layers or in thin fillets (I prefer this second option). We just have to season the peppers; I usually use salt, pepper, oregano, garlic, some basil leaves and olive oil but ample room for imagination! For example, some use mint instead of basil, or season the peppers with a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce or wine vinegar, or enrich the dish by adding capers or olives! However, I advise you to prepare a large quantity of Italian roasted peppers recipe, as they can be kept in the fridge for about a week!
