Additional Notes

*To roast red bell pepper: remove stem and cut pepper in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes. Place pepper, skin side up, on foil-lined baking sheet; gently flatten pepper. Place under broiler until skin blisters and chars (about 4-5 minutes). Remove from broiler and place in a small bowl; cover with plastic wrap and set aside for about 10 minutes, until skin easily removes. Peel pepper under running water to remove skin and chop.
