My family loves Italian food. Every-time my son visits he wants me to make him lasagna! The next time I visit him I am going to request he make me lasagna! I like lasagna but I don't make it very often, however, I do make spaghetti weekly!  Years ago a friend gave me her grandmother's recipe for roasted peppers that is delicious with spaghetti and lasagna. 

Just out of curiosity I looked online to see what the nutritional benefits of bell peppers were and was surprised that one bell pepper provided 3 times the daily allowance of vitamin C than citrus. The article is very interesting: http://www.gayot.com/lifestyle/health/features/bell-pepper-health-benefits.html

Let's make some roasted bell peppers, you won't be disappointed, I promise!


Step 1: Ingredients

12 Bell Peppers - Red or Yellow are best, but consider green to add color.
½ Cup minced garlic
½ Cup chopped fresh parsley
½ tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
½ Cup olive oil
Sliced French bread
Paper sack
Parsley garnish optional
 
 
Please notice this recipe is the original recipe I got from my friend and did not want to change it for this instructable. I just want you to know I made a smaller version. You can divide the recipe to suit your family needs.

Step 2: Preparations

Wash all the peppers and leave the moisture.
Thinly slice off the bottom of the peppers so they stand upright.

Your pictures are so fabulous... they're making my mouth water! The colored peppers are SO inexpensive here in Baja, as compared to the States. I'm faving this and hope the little store has yellow peppers tomorrow. I've been craving spaghetti and can't wait to try this!

Did you find yellow peppers?
Not today. ;-( The produce truck doesn't come until Wednesday, so I'll try to get there early.

I buy my peppers at Sam's, they are cheaper. The green peppers would add color but they do take longer to cook. I have trouble getting some produce here because they don't ever have it. Meyers lemons are never here and they are so good! You must try this it is so good on french bread. I made my recipe smaller and I added too much garlic so you might taste your peppers as you add the garlic because I know you probably don't won't to make 12 peppers. I think I added more than 1/8 cup to 3 peppers. I wished I had made 2 red peppers for the color.Thanks for faving and commenting! Have a splendorous day!
