Boy, talk about an easy appetizer. How about using just two ingredients (three if you want to add the chopped basil) for a pretty, delicious dish of bite sized morsels? Roasting the peppers is an easy thing to do and if you've never done this yourself, start now. You will have another great technique in your cooking arsenal that will come in very handy. You can use this method to make Peperonata or to roast peppers for a sauce or side dish.
I'm on vacation this week with my family (at a place that has free wireless in the lobby - always a plus) but I wanted to post something for Easter. I obviously won't be cooking this week, but I would like to steer you to a post I wrote last year, showing how to make the traditional Italian Easter Bread. It's a sweet, soft and really delicious bread that I think you will love. If you're going to someone's house for Easter, take along a few of these and they will be a hit.
