An unexpected invitation to join Marco, Giovanna and family at their seaside house today. As soon as I arrived in their driveway I could smell grilled red peppers. This is how Giovanna prepares them as a contorno [vegetable accompaniment]:

Grill 6 long, red peppers [not bell peppers] until the skins are blackened [or get them black in the oven]. Cool and pull off the skins. [Don't bother removing the seeds.] Cut the peppers into strips, put them in a bowl and slice 1 or 2 cloves of garlic onto them. Sprinkle with salt and add a good dollop of olive oil.
