Sweet-And-Sour Red Peppers

Type: Cheese, Eggs, Vegetables
Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozRed bell peppers
2 tablespoons 30mlFruity olive oil
1   Garlic clove - thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1 tablespoon 15mlTomato paste - (the kind you squeez
  Out of a tube)
1 tablespoon 15mlBalsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon 15mlBasil leaves - left whole, -=or=- (small)
  Basil leaves - shredded

Recipe Instructions

SLICE THE PEPPER INTO STRIPS 2- to 3-inches long and about 1/4-inch wide--or whatever width appeals to you. They can be very skinny, or nice and wide, too. Heat oil in a large skillet with the garlic. When it's hot, add the peppers, sprinkled with salt, and stir so that all are coated with the oil. Cook over a brisk heat, shaking the pan occasionally until the peppers are hot and beginning to cook, about 5 minutes, then stir in the tomato paste.

When it is well incorporated, add the vinegar and stir. Continue to saute until the vinegar is reduced and the peppers are as done as you like. They're good when still somewhat firm--perfect for a little salad--but they can also cook until they are very soft throughout-- good with pasta or heaped on garlic- rubbed grilled bread. Toss in the basil, season with pepper, and heap onto a serving plate.
