This was in a magazine and was supposedly Sophia Loren's mother's recipe. It was in an article about her. It is a bit time consuming roasting the peppers but tasty.


  • 8 large or 10 medium plump wrinkle free yellow, red, green bell peppers
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • salt
  • 3 tbsp. freshly grated romano cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. dry bread crumbs


  • Roast the peppers whole in a very hot oven until the skin is charred on all sides.
  • Remove the peppers from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Carefully peel them, then remove the stems and seeds.
  • Slice the peppers lengthwise into 1/2 inch wide strips.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add the garlic and saute until golden.
  • Add the pepper strips.
  • Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring gently once or twice.
  • Add a pinch of salt, the cheese and the bread crumbs.
  • Stir for a minute or two, then serve.
