How To Make Roasted Red Peppers

Roasted red peppers are one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen. Tossed with nearly any pasta dish, substituted for tomatoes in an easy caprese salad, riding atop a burger or blended into pasta sauce or the most grown-up ketchup we know, roasted red peppers (or RRP, in shorthand culinary Sharpie scribble) are among the easiest must-knows for any cook. Free yourself from the confines of the jar. Here's what you'll need:

  • Red peppers
  • Olive oil
  • Coarse salt
  • Aluminum foil
  • Baking dish
  • Paper bag
