At Christmas, yes a MONTH ago I bought a big bag of these pretty little sweet peppers.
Since I am ONE of the 3 people in this house, and the ONLY one who eats them they have lasted quite some time............
So this past weekend I decided to see what I could do with them. They were in great shape even though they were a month old!
I rubbed olive oil on them, sprinkled them with cracked black pepper and coarse sea salt, then I added some thickly sliced red onion (that was also hanging around for a few weeks) and did the same with the onion.
then I stuck them in the oven at 325 for an hour or so.....
When they looked like this on both sides I turned off the oven and let them rest until they were cool enough to handle.
I pulled out the stems and got as many of the seeds out as was reasonable. Then I cut up the onion slices.
I added some pasta and some pitted kalamata olives.
It didn't need any extra dressing because there was olive oil and "juice" from the roasting process
This was a fabulous salad! I will definitely be making this again.
It's wonderful at room temperature so it's perfect for me to take to work.
And like all really great food it looks pretty too!
We eat with our eyes as well as our mouths.
