Italian-Style Roasted Peppers
Makes: 3 cups roasted peppers
Preparation Time: 5 Minute(s)
Marinate Time: 4 Hour(s)
Cook Time: 20 Minute(s)
6 large red, green or yellow bell peppers
1 cup Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing or Wish-Bone® Light Italian Dressing
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves*
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
Place red peppers in large aluminum-foil-lined baking pan or on broiler rack. Broil, turning occasionally, 20 minutes or until peppers turn almost completely black. Immediately place in paper bag; close bag and let cool about 30 minutes. Peel off skin under cold running water, then remove stems and seeds; slice into long thick strips.
Combine peppers with remaining ingredients in large bowl. Cover and marinate in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, at least 4 hours.
For best flavor, serve peppers at room temperature and, if desired, with olives, mozzarella cheese and tomatoes.
*SUBSTITUTION: Use 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves, crushed.
