Tips

You can buy the minced roasted garlic and the roasted red sweet peppers in jars in some supermarkets or specialty shops. To roast your own sweet pepper, cut 1 medium red sweet pepper in half. Remove and discard stem, seeds, and membranes. Cut each pepper half in half again. Place pepper pieces, cut sides down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 425° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pepper skin blisters. Remove pepper pieces from baking sheet; wrap in foil. Let stand for 30 minutes. Remove and discard skin from pepper pieces; cut into strips.
