I had some bell peppers in the fridge and wondered what I should do with them for dinner a few nights ago, and then thought to make a sauce with them – this is how I made my roasted pepper pasta sauce, which I served with wheat-free pasta.

  1. Standing the peppers up, sliced down each side to get the four 'cheeks' of the pepper, and chop off the bases - this will leave the seeds attached to the stem :)

  3. Place in a hot (220-250C) oven for 20-25 minutes until they start to char. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool slightly before chopping into smaller pieces.
  4. Fry the onions and garlic in a little olive oil until they soften and then add the chopped roasted peppers.
  5. Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, black pepper, dried rosemary and some chopped fresh basil.
  6. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes
  7. Serve over your choice of pasta and sprinkle more fresh basil over the top.
