Italian Style Roasted Peppers
|Red peppers/Green or yellow||6 Large|
|Italian dressing||8 Ounce|
|Fresh basil leaves||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chopped|
In large aluminum-foil-lined baking pan or on broiler rack, place red peppers.
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.
Under cold running water, peel off skin, then remove stems and seeds; slice into long thick strips.
In large bowl, combine peppers with remaining ingredients.
Cover and marinate in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, at least 4 hours.
For best flavor, serve peppers at room temperature and, if desired, with olives, moz-zarella cheese and tomatoes.
