Roasting sweet bell peppers brings out an extra sweetness and makes a flavorful addition to a variety of dishes! Try roasted sweet bell peppers on  homemade pizza,  pasta dishes  or  as a topping on fresh baked seafood  filet.  Here’s  how to roast sweet bell peppers  as well as some  ideas on how to incorporate them into your family’s favorite meals. 

Roasting Basics

  1. Rinse bell peppers and remove stems and seeds. Cut each bell pepper into quarters.
  2. Preheat broiler (use high broiler setting, if your oven has options). Place peppers on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Lightly coat peppers with olive oil.
  3. Broil peppers for  7 — 10  minutes until skins are wrinkled and starting to turn black.
  4. Using tongs, immediately transfer peppers to a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit for  20 — 30  minutes.
  5. Remove plastic wrap. Peppers should be soft and skins should be easy to peel. If not, try using a paring knife to pull up the edge of a skin and pull off.
