Ingredients to make Red Bell Pepper - Tomato & Basil Sauce

How to make Red Bell Pepper - Tomato & Basil Sauce

  1. Warm olive oil in a non-stick pan and add grated garlic.
  2. Saute for few seconds and add chopped bell pepper and saute on high flame for a minute. Now add chopped tomatoes and mix.
  3. Season with salt. When the tomatoes are half done, add chili flakes, dry oregano and basil.
  4. Stir by adding water and bringing it to boil. To this add basil leaves, stir and cover with lid. Reduce the flame and cook till done.
  5. Grind to paste upon cooling. Store this sauce in a container.
  6. To make a dipping sauce, take a small portion of the sauce and drizzle EVOO over it.

My Tip:

One can try adding any other fresh herb like Thyme or Rosemary instead of Basil. For a more sweeter version a little sugar can be added to the sauce.
