Pepperonata

Pepperonata

There's only a handful of ingredients in this dish, which means it's cheap and quick to prepare. It's also very healthy as one of the main ingredients is tomatoes. Tomatoes are full of a natural chemical called lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps protects against free radicals that cause cancer. This is great for lunch or as a light dinner and goes really well with some bread to mop up the juices.

INGREDIENTS

1 large onion sliced, not diced
1 red pepper cut into strips
1 yellow pepper cut into strips
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic chopped finely
