My mother-in-law, who lives in Italy, taught me to make this simple casserole. It’s considered wholesome peasant fare—but I’ve never tasted peppers as delicious! —Robyn Scollo, Fairport, NY

"So I had a surplus of assorted variety of sweet peppers and no real good ideas as what to do with them. I live on a very tight budget, so it couldnt involve anything with too many ingredients.

This dish was very easy to prepare. Clean and slice the peppers and toss them with oil, salt and pepper. I used sub sandwhich dressing instead of olive oil and added half a tbs of veg oil just in case. Put the peppers in a baking dish for 25 minutes and then added the bread crumbs. I put two pieces of bread in the oven for a few minutes and just crumbled it ontop.
Right before serving I added a little parmesan cheese. Nothing fancy, just the kind in the jar.
I found this dish to be delicious and satisfying. I ate half of it before anyone else even got to try it. It has a simple flavor that is very pleasing. I would definitely make it again, and its very Vegan friendly."
