Growing up in an Italian household, this was the ‘go to’ recipe in summer when the garden was producing loads of fresh capsicums.

You can use mild capsicums, colourful capsicums or even spicier chillies for this recipe. It always makes a fantastic addition to the table as a side dish with meat or fish, a filling for focaccias or sandwiches, or even simply tossed through cooked pasta.
