This recipe comes from Mark Bittman. It is good enough to be served as a side dish, or it is delightful as a sauce for pasta or potatoes. It couldn’t be any easier! Serves 4.
1 yellow or purple onion, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
4-6 colored sweet peppers, halved, seeded, and sliced
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes with seeds and juices
2 sprigs fresh basil, leaves only
Salt to taste
- Saute onion in olive oil in a wide, deep skillet until soft. Add peppers and cook until wilted. Add tomatoes and basil leaves.
- Bring to a boil, then simmer until thick, about 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and serve.
