Oh…. I just love the Bell Pepper for their vibrant colors more than for anything else. Those Reds, Yellows and Greens just makes a dish more appealing. They impart an unique but a subtle taste and that’s what I like about these veggies.   Since my son loves his pastas and pizzas, I have to keep certain sauces handy. Also I prefer home made ones to the bottles ones so here is something I tried and which definitely turned out to be so much better than its ready made counterpart.   And now for the best part…. this salsa can be bottled and stored in the fridge for upto 7 to 8 days.   Instead of simply cooking the peppers here I have roasted them. Which I think imparted a certain subtle smokiness and at the same time brought out the sweet flavor of bell peppers. Plus, the sweet scent of roasting peppers is magical. This Roasted bell peppers salsa is great on anything from pizza to salad and of course the pasta. Bell Peppers are a good source of vitamins A and C. Whether you roast your own or use them from a jar, these roasted peppers will definitely brighten you day with their sunny colors…

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
