  • 5 large red bell peppers or 10 long red peppers, seeded
  • Olive oil
  • A few drops of hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • A pinch of sugar or more
  • A splash of vinegar (optional)


  • #There are only two ingredients in this sauce -peppers and onions – but it is an experience on the taste buds. This is a tasty sauce to accompany Polenta Triangles or any other dish. The sauce can also be used as a topping for bruschetta (or crostini). Spread generously over prepared bruschetta and top with anything you fancy — olives, toasted pine nuts, prosciutto, parmesan, ricotta, mozzarella, grilled vegetables, ( and the list goes on and on).# Cut the peppers into large pieces. Smear an oven tray with olive oil and lay the peppers on the tray.
  • Cover and bake until peppers are soft. When the peppers are cool, place them in a food processor with all of the rest of the ingredients.
  • Process until smooth. Scrape the sauce into a bowl. Taste and correct seasoning if necessary.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Return to room temperature before serving,
