Italian Roasted Peppers Recipe

Italian Roasted Peppers are a quite simple recipe that anyone can easily make. This is the healthy and low-calorie recipe because the peppers are marinated in their own juice with only a little bit of olive oil. They could be a light snack or vegan and vegetarian appetizer option.

I make these roasted bell peppers quite often and keep them in a glass jar or container under olive oil for at least a week or more.

How to Serve Italian Roasted Peppers

I enjoy the Italian Roasted Peppers whenever I desire: with my breakfast toast, as a snack or light appetizer, and almost with every meal for dinner. Really delicious on a piece of toasted baguette or crackers with feta cheese, garnished with toasted pine nuts and fresh greens.

These peppers are so good to put in sandwiches with this Homemade Chicken Pastrami or to serve them alongside this Roasted Pork Tenderloin.

So, they are a great accompaniment to any meat or poultry or served on their own with crusty bread and mozzarella. Yum!
