How to Make Red Bell Pepper Sauce
- Char bell peppers over gas flame or roast them in broiler until blackened on all sides. Place the blackened peppers in a paper bag close tightly for about 10 minutes. Peel,seed and coarsely chop bell peppers. Set aside.
- Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, garlic and chili pepper; sauté until shallots are tender, oh about 5 minutes.
Cool slightly. Pour mixture to a blender, add bell peppers, chicken broth and Italian seasoning. Puree until smooth or leave a little chunky if desired..(I usually take out 1 cup
at the chunky stage, if I plan on making my Bell Pepper Bread).
- Season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
This can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm over medium heat before using.
