Mixed Bell Peppers with Onions, Tomatoes and Basil

Serves 6

2 large red bell peppers

2 large yellow bell peppers

3 tbsp olive oil

2 medium onions, thinly sliced

2 medium plum tomatoes, peeled, cored seeded and diced (whole, canned will do nicely)

10 leaves fresh basil, cut in narrow strips

salt and pepper

  1. Core, halve and seed the peppers. Slice into 1-inch strips.
  2. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan. Add the peppers and onions and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
