  • 5 red bell peppers
  • 8 tomatoes, cored
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for drizzling)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper to taste
  • 12 oz. pasta (your choice)
  • up to 1/2 cup pasta water (saved from boiling the pasta)
  • 1/2 cup basil


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the bell peppers on their sides along with the tomatoes. Broil for about 15 minutes. Turn every few minutes as needed until charred. Let cool.
  2. Take off the skin and remove seeds from the peppers and cut into strips; peel and chop the tomatoes.
  3. Cook the sliced garlic cloves in the olive oil in a pot over medium heat until beginning to brown, 3 minutes. Add the roasted peppers, tomatoes and any collected juices, 1 teaspoon salt and a few pinches of black pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce consistency (15 minutes).
  4. Toss with the cooked pasta, adding up to 1/2 cup pasta-cooking water to loosen the sauce.
  5. Take off the heat, stir in the basil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve warm with drizzled olive oil on top. Enjoy!
