  • 5

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2

    large red bell peppers, sliced lengthwise 1/2 inch thick

  • 2

In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the peppers and season with salt. Cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 18 minutes.

Transfer the peppers to a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature. MAKE AHEAD The peppers can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
