These wonderfully appetizing and colorful rolls are a traditional antipasto dish of southern Italy. In Italy they are best known as the most popular snack of a well-known restaurant on the magnificent island of Ischia, near Naples, where they are always available. In olden times the peppers were served halved rather than rolled up.
6 large bell peppers (2 each of red, green and yellow)
salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup coarse fresh bread crumbs
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
3 oz olive paste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-1/2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Anchovy fillets packed in oil, for garnish (optional)
Bell Pepper Rolls Recipe at
Wash and dry the bell peppers. Bake them in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 30 minutes, turning them carefully about 4 times, until easily pierced with a fork. Rub them one by one with a teatowel to remove the skin; cut each pepper in half and remove the seeds and ribs. Cut the peppers into 1 1/4 inch strips; sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Soak the bread in the vinegar; squeeze it to remove excess vinegar. In a bowl, combine the bread, olive paste and garlic, until a thick cream forms. Mix in 2 tablespoons of the oil. Spread the mixture on the pepper strips and roll them up. Arrange the rolls on a serving dish and drizzle the remaining oil over them. Sprinkle with the parsley. If desired, garnish with anchovy fillets before serving.
