Roasted Red Peppers

I think that roasted red peppers have become my new favorite snack foods. They are nutritious, have an almost sweet like quality when they are roasted, and they are super easy to make.  Since there are only approximately 51 calories in a large red pepper, and the olive oil only adds a few calories, these make the perfect low cal, high nutrition snack or side dish to a lunch or dinner.

Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Any seasonings of your choice
*There are no exact measurements for this recipe. It's just "to taste"

Preheat the oven to 400°
Cut the peppers into 1/4's or just slice the pieces as thin as you would like them. Place them into a bowl and drizzle olive oil over the top of them. Use your hands to mix the peppers and olive oil, being sure to coat all sides of the peppers. Spray a cookie sheet or broiler pan with Pam. Place the oiled peppers onto the greased pan. Sprinkle both sides of the peppers with salt and pepper, and any other of your favorite seasonings. Bake at 400° for 25 min. Turn the peppers over and continue to bake for 25-30 more minutes or until completely soft and just beginning to turn dark around the edges of the peppers.
