Comments: About roasting peppers: Roasting peppers is easily achieved over a gas flame or under the broiler by placing the whole pepper on/under the burner and turning it as the skin begins to blacken. After the whole pepper is black, place the pepper in a paper sack and let it steam and cool for a few minutes. When cooled, carefully remove the skin, core and seeds. Save any liquid from the peppers, it lends the dish a delightful smoky flavor.
