  • 1 oz Butter
  • 2 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1 Large onion thinly sliced
  • 1 Garlic clove crushed
  • 1 lb Red peppers pith and seeds removed and cut into strips
  • 1 lb Tomatoes blanched, peeled and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Bay leaf


  • Melt the butter with the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and fry until the onion is soft.
  • Stir in the red peppers, reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, seasoning and bay leaf, and simmer, uncovered, for a further 20 minutes. If there is too much liquid in the pan, increase the heat to moderately high and cook for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and some liquid has evaporated.
  • Remove from the heat and discard the bay leaf. Serve at once, if you are serving the peperonata hot. (This dish is equally good served cold.)
