To prepare homemade roasted red peppers, preheat oven 375°F (190°C). Place 2 medium red bell peppers in pie plate or baking dish. Roast for 30 to 40 min., turning once or twice, until skins are blistered. Remove from the oven and cover dish with foil; let peppers cool, about 20 min. Uncover and peel skins off peppers; slice in half and remove seeds.
