Quick, easy, and delicious! I always have roasted red peppers sitting in the fridge just waiting to be used in recipes, so I used those instead of roasting green peppers. We had them for a light supper, but I think I might prep them one evening and then just pop them into the oven for a quick and savory breakfast.
