Peppers. Olives and Capers
Layer this sautéed combination over rice or pasta or serve it all by itself. Add anchovies to the recipe if family and friends don’t object. Or give depth to the taste with anchovy paste instead like I do. Adding sliced sweet yellow onion to the sauté is great too, but we go for a lot of garlic. Try this 15 minute dish for a quick light tasty lunch or dinner.
