Red Roasted Pepper and Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Lynnda Cloutier


You can use fresh prepared roasted peppers, but be sure to peel and seed them first. If you use the roasted peppers from a jar, make sure you drain them well before chopping. Sun dried tomatoes should be rehydrated if dried or if packed in oil, make sure they're drained well. You can use the spread as a dip for vegetables or a sauce for pasta or rice, also.Source: Unknown
