It is important to skin the tomatoes: put them in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon, plunge into a bowl of cold water, then peel off the skins with a sharp knife. This versatile casserole of peppers and tomatoes can be served hot with grilled meat or fish, or cold as a side salad or starter. This dish originates from Italy, where peppers and tomatoes grow in abundance. An Italian cook would use olive oil for frying.
