*Note: Jarred roasted red peppers can be found either in the ethnic aisle or canned vegetable aisle of your grocery store. To roast your own, place whole fresh red bell pepper on hot grill, under the broiler or directly over open flame of gas cooktop. Cook, turning to char all sides of pepper. Place pepper in a small paper bag or zipper bag, close and let stand 10 minutes to steam. Peel skins off and use as directed above.
