Beautiful Peppers!

I went to the grocery store today and there was a HUGE display of giant bell peppers... red, yellow and orange... all of them were FOUR for $1.00! Wow! Around here that is unheard of. I grabed several and tomorrow I am going to roast them, peel them and pop them in the freezer. I like to use them on pizza, in spaghetti sauce or in pasta salads... The red ones are even a great addition to salsa when they are roasted. Here's an easy way to roast them:

Set oven to broil. Cut peppers in half and remove seeds. Place pepper halves on a baking sheet and put them in the over for about 10 minutes or until they look nice and black. I check on them every 5 minutes or so since the broiler is so hot. Once they are done, take them off the sheet and put them in a large container with a lid. Put the lid on and allow them to sit for about 20 minutes. Then remove them from the container and with your hands peel off the blackened skin. You can then slice them and use them or just freeze them as is. They keep several months in the freezer.
