Far superior to pasta sauce in jars and only 5 ingredients! Also freezes beautifully.

Really good, easy and healthy recipe. Takes more than 5 mins to prepare though :) Also needs additonal seasoning. I used lots of chilli powder, which worked very well.

Lovely and works with just about any veg. I sometimes add a small aubergine and a couple of cloves of garlic to the roasting tray, half a chilli or so in the blender also works well or a splash of balsamic at the end. So much better than ready made sauce and so quick to prepare.

This was really quick and easy to prepare and tasted sweet and delicious. Used it as a pasta sauce and even my veg-hating children thought it was delicious! Might add some garlic and possibly a little chilli next time too.

I really enjoyed this recipe. We will be having it again that's for sure. I added some garlic and a dash of balsamic vinegar to give it that little more flavour and some chestnut mushrooms. I may try adding some worcester sauce next time. Well worth trying this was delicous. Make sure the peppers are not to small keep them chunky so the brown all over.
