This is a staple in our home. Passed down from my Mom and so simple to make.

Roasted red pepper in a jar are so expensive and this is a great way to save.

You can also freeze the peppers after they have been roasted and before you season them. Just wrap in plastic wrap. Then when you need to make this, you simply defrost and season. This comes in handy when red peppers are on sale and abundant.

We eat this on Italian bread, focaccia or even crackers. Usually we serve it as an antipasto. But I love to have it for lunch with a side salad.
