Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Peperonata. I say peperonata, but I'm sure some will have conniptions about what I made! The recipe I have (naturally, I don't follow it; where would be the fun?!) says a couple of red bell peppers, a can of Pomodoro tomatoes, the right amount of chili (it doesn't say "the right amount of chili" but that's what it means, as every recipes does, right?).

So, naturally, I ignore this. Green peppers are added because A) they're to hand & B) Why not enjoy the contrasting colours? Onion. Oooo! Wrong! Yet, the first google you hit for peperonata has garlic & basil in the ingredients. Can't stand garlic meself, but onion I love, so why not. And yes, basil was included (the plant will not last much longer; it's already dropping leaves all over).

So, peppers (various), onion, tomatoes (not Pomodoro), basil, chili. It won't be peperonata by somebody's standards, but it's damn tasty! ;-)
