1. Wash, clean and cut the bell peppers into strips or pieces.
  2. Wash, clean and dice the onion and garlic
  3. In a large pan heat the olive oil and add the onion and garlic. Let them get translucent.
  4. Now add the bell pepper strips and the diced tomatoes. Who like to get out the light bitterness of the tomatoes can add half a tsp of honey.
  5. Stir all well that enough liquid is on the bottom of the pan and let it cook on medium until the bell peppers are soft.
  6. Just shortly before cooking is finished add salt and pepper to season the peperonata.
  7. Serve hot or store until next day and serve cold.
Recipe Notes

The peperonata is great also adding pitted and sliced olives. 

It can be served warm and cold. Warm it is great as a side dish with baccalĂ  (dry salted cod fish), in a hamburger, with meat balls or also with polenta (porridge of cornmeal).

Cold it is great as antipasto or on a toasted slice of bread as bruschetta.
