-Hey everyone, I'm Judith. Well today, I'm gonna be showing you how to make Joe Monte's Marinated Roast Peppers, really delicious, a great filling for sandwiches, in some pasta, or just as an appetizer by itself. So, what you'll need for this is 6 to 8 medium sweet red or green peppers halves and seeded. Today, we'll be using some nice green peppers. We have some olive oil and we have some extra quarter cup of olive oil; 2 tablespoons of vinegar; 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning; 1/2 teaspoon of salt; and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. So, first of all, we have our unheated broiler rack right there, which we're gonna broil our peppers on. So, let's get our peppers. As you see, we've halved them. Now, we wanna brush our peppers with some of our olive oil. It's got a nice a little base here on both sides like so, and then cut side down. We're gonna put them on the broiler rack. Now, if necessary, we can actually split up our peppers if they are too big. Wanna get them flatted as best as possibly can. So, we're gonna repeat this process, pasting our peppers with out olive oil, and then putting them cut side down, flatting them onto our broiler pan. So, our peppers are on our pan, we're gonna put that in the broiler about 3 inches from the heat until the surfaces are nice and charred. When they're done, we're then gonna pop them in a brown paper bag and let our peppers cool. We'll then discard the skins because the skins will discard easily after they cooled in a brown paper bag, and then we'll cut then into half an inch wide strips. So, our peppers are ready. I cut them into half inch wide strips. Now, remember, we have them under the broiler. Once they were charred, we put them in a brown paper bag, let them cool in there, and then we remove the out there skins and cut them into half inch strips, and this is gonna be a perfect filling for a sandwich or I said can go into pasta or just as an appetizer by itself when it's mixed with out little dressing. So, into a medium bowl goes our oil. Our vinegar goes in there too, our salt and pepper, and our lovely, fresh Italian fresh seasoning goes in there. So, let's just give that a good little whisk up there. Get all those lovely flavors in together and that will be a beautiful appetizer or antipasti. Oh, just love roasted peppers. Perfect, so in go the peppers, looking good, looking very good. Oh and even a panini would be amazing. There we go. So, get those peppers covered with all of that lovely Italian season mixture and really that I said, you wanna serve them nice and cool, so make sure to cover them, put them in the refrigerator for about 2 to 24 hours and that's it. That's you have your beautiful peppers. There you go everyone. That's how you make Joe Monte's Marinated Roasted Peppers.
