Ingredients Italian Roasted Sweet Peppers

16 large sweet Italian peppers
4 large cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Fresh Basil

Wash the peppers and allow to completely dry.
Cut off the stem ends and pull out the seeds and white membranes.
Turn the peppers upside down and tap on the cutting board to shake out any loose seeds.
Put the oil and minced garlic into a large glass baking pan and mix the two.
Add the peppers and toss until each pepper is totally coated with garlic oil.
Roast at 350 degrees F. for about 50 minutes. When the peppers begin to brown and start to collapse, they are done. Sprinkle with salt and fresh basil.

They can also be refrigerated for a day or two until needed for another recipe. They are excellent as a side for pork chops or roasted chicken breasts.
