Roasted Red Pepper Spread/Pesto

3lbs red bell peppers

1 clove garlic unpeeled ( i prefer 2 cloves)

small white onion

1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh Basil

Olive Oil (enough to get it moving smoothly in the food processor)


Roast the red pepper, tomatoes, garlic and onion, turn to roast all sides. Tomatoes and peppers should be blistered, blackened and softened, while the garlic and onion just need blackened spots.

Place peppers and tomatoes in paper bag, close tight and let cool 15 minutes. Peel the garlic and onion and finely chop both. Need about an 1/8th of  a cup of onion. Peel and seed peppers and tomatoes. Run all ingredients through food processor adding just enough olive oil to have it smooth.
