  • 12 Italian long hots washed and dried
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt


To Cook in the Oven

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Place peppers on baking sheet, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  • Roast peppers in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes until the peppers soften up.

To Cook on the Stovetop

  • Add peppers, oil, and salt to a large saute pan and heat over medium high heat.
  • Continue heating until the peppers are slightly brown. Make sure to turn peppers every minute or so to avoid burning.
  • After peppers have picked up a bit of browning, cover pan, reduce heat to medium/low, and continue cooking until peppers have softened up. (15 minutes or so)


Peppers may be stored in the refrigerator in a jar filled with olive oil for at least one week.
