PEPERONATA (A simple but delicious recipe with peppers)

Hello Everybody,

you know that I'm having some problems of health in these days, it's really hard but I want to go on and I don't want to feel overwhelmed. I want to be my self,  life is too precious an my little family too.
So I take a deep breath and I tell to my self...Let's go on Gege. Let's rock! If God is for us, who can be against us? 

So today I will share with you this typical italian recipe, that is really good! 
We love it and eat very often! 
It's so easy and simple! You can do it in 25 minutes! 


If you are Italian, you know this recipe.
If you are not Italian, you have to try will feel a little Italian too! :-)
This recipe makes me think really about italian "dolce vita". It makes me think about my family, this is a recipe that we do when we have family dinner together during summer. 

So here you have the ingredients:

  • peppers
  • tomatoes
  • garlic
  • bay leaves
  • salt
  • extra virgin olive oil


Step 1:  wash your peppers, tomatoes and garlic.

Step 2: chop the peppers and tomatoes.

You will have this

Step 3: put everything in a big skillet, add salt, bay leaves and some extra virgin olive oil.

Step 4: mix well, cover with a lid and cook. Mix every two minutes and add  a little bit of water in  the skillet  if you see  that the peppers are too dry.

Step 5: when you see the "cream" in your skillet and the peppers and tomatoes are tender, you are almost done!  Mix well again, wait a minute and....

Enjoy it!


To enjoy at most this recipe, I suggest to eat your Peperonata with  some good bread,  better if it's homemade!


Much love,
