*Roasted Red Pepper:
Cut the pepper in half. Discard the seeds. Set the oven to broil (grill), and heat it up. Place the red pepper halves on an oven tray (inside facing down) and place in the oven. Roast them for about 15 minutes. Leave them in a paper or plastic bag for about 10 minutes to peel off the skin easily. Alternatively, you can barbecue it until softened. Just place the red peppers out side facing down on the barbecue.
