The “melted” peppers can also be used as an appetizer on croustades. Served on polenta, this makes a fine vegetarian meal.

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil and balsamic vinegar over low heat.
  2. Add the seeded, sliced peppers and cook slowly, about an hour, until they are “melted”.
  3. Meanwhile prepare Basic Soft Polenta.
  4. When peppers are done, serve over polenta.
