Ingredients

  • 2 large yellow or red bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic crushed tomatoes with basil, undrained
  • 3 1/2 cups Progresso™ reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton) or 2 cans (14 oz each) vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)

Steps

  • 1
    Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Set oven control to broil. Cut bell peppers into quarters, removing membranes and seeds. Place skin sides up in pan; press down to flatten.
  • 2
    Broil peppers with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat about 10 minutes or until blackened. Wrap foil around peppers; let stand 20 minutes. Remove skin from peppers; discard. Cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. Set aside.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until crisp-tender.
  • 4
    Stir in tomatoes, broth, sugar, red pepper flakes and salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers; heat until hot.

  • Short on time? Use 1 1/2 cups jarred roasted sweet red bell peppers rather than roasting your own.
