3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (optional)

How to make Roasted Bell Peppers.  Bell peppers are found at the grocery store all year round but they are in season in summer, when they are sweet and meaty. It is no secret that Italians like simple food. The true secret is in using the best tasting, fresh, ripe vegetables. Use red or yellow bell peppers as they have milder sweeter taste and they peel much easier than the green ones. Serve simply as a side (contorno) to any dish of meat or fish.

Pull and remove the skin.
