Ingredients per 6 persons
Peppers, 3 of different colors

Heat a griddle pan until it is very hot. Place the peppers over it until the skin blisters and the peppers soften. It will take 10 minutes. Season with salt.
Turn the peppers and roast them also on the other side.
Slice the bread, toast it and rub a garlic clove over it. Then cut the peppers into thin strips and toast the pinenuts.
Put them in a bowl with 4 tablespoons of olive oil and the basil leaves, then mix everything well together. Put the mixture over the bread, then drizzle with olive oil. Serve warm or cold.

Alida Zamparini – My Little Italian Kitchen
My name is Alida, I come from the North-East of Italy and I currently live in the UK. In my kitchen I love to re-create dishes my mum would do for me as a child. I started cooking as a teenager; my favourite hobby was baking during the long Italian school summer holidays. I first started baking simple cakes and only later moved onto cooking proper meals.
My blog is a collection of recipes with an Italian flair. I created it in order to save and share my recipes which are a mixture of my own ideas but I often get inspired by magazines, the web, books and newspapers. I often start a recipe and then I change it altogether as I go along. Cooking is an expression of who you are and your personality. You have to put your whole self into it: your passion, feelings and experiences all go into the food and you become part of the recipe.
I believe in ingredients which are locally sourced and in season whenever possible as this is the secret for the greatest tasting meals. There is also lots of pleasure when plates are wiped clean and every stomach is satisfied!
