Direction

1) Start with the sweet pepper sauce. Preheat the oven at 180oC. Half the sweet peppers vertically, remove the seeds and the stalk and put them on a griddle with peel on top. Salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake until the flesh gets soft and the peel a bit brown (about 20-30 minutes).

2) At the same time on a small pot saute onion and garlic with olive oil for 4-5 minutes at medium heat. Put the grated tomatoes, salt and pepper, and boil about 20 minutes or until the sauce is reduced to half.

3) Remove sweet peppers from the oven and let them chill. Remove the peel, mince the flesh and mix them with the sauce.
