Ingredients

  • 10 Cubanelle peppers — , washed
  • 4 extra large ripe tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves — , pressed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar or honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/4 tsp oregano

Instructions

FOR THE PEPPERS:

  1. Preheat gas grill to medium heat (400 F). Clean grates.
  2. Grill peppers for 3-4 minutes per side (or longer, if needed), until charred on all sides, but not burned.
  3. Place in a bowl with lid, or if you don't have a lid, cover with plastic wrap. Let peppers cool to room temperature. Peel peppers.

FOR THE SAUCE:

  1. To peel the tomatoes: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Make a small cross cut ( 1/4 in x 1/4 in) at the bottom of each tomato. Drop tomatoes in boiling water for 1 minute, until skins start to wrinkle.
  2. Place tomatoes in a bowl with cold water for a few minutes, until cool enough to handle.
  3. Peel tomatoes, cut into small cubes.
  4. In a saucepan, combine tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt, sugar, basil and oregano. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 20-25 minutes, until thick, stirring frequently. Taste sauce and add more seasoning, if needed.
  5. Season peppers with salt. Serve topped with the tomato sauce. Garnish with parsley.
