Is there anything I can do with less-than-ideal bell peppers?

Recommended Posts

Long story short, my garden has gone without water for awhile, and the red and orange peppers that I THOUGHT were never going to turn all turned while we were away on vacation :( Now they're kind of wrinkly and leathery--not rotten, but not yummy either. The skins are very tough (though the flesh is super-sweet!).


Is there any way for me to save some of these? Cook them into something? Turn them into soup? Can I still roast them?


If anyone has any suggestions, I'm :bigear: Thanks!

My DH makes a delicious pasta sauce with them. He slices them and cooks them down very slowly over a couple of hours. A few tomatoes get added, too. Don't skimp on the garlic and olive oil!


(Our recipes uses a half pound of veal, but I know some don't like to use it. We have found that we don't like the sauce nearly as much when it's made with regular beef -- the beef somehow is too strong. If not using veal, I would just make it plain.)
