    Deb Lindsey/The Washington Post; tableware from Cr


2 jars (16 ounces each) roasted bell peppers, preferably a combination of red and yellow peppers

1 large bunch basil, leaves only, coarsely chopped (about cup)

7 ounces feta cheese

Freshly ground black pepper

Olive oil, for drizzling

cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

Drain the peppers in a colander. If they are whole, slice them in half, discarding any stems or seeds.

Arrange a layer of peppers in 4 small individual gratin dishes or 1 large gratin dish. Top with a handful of basil leaves, then crumble over a layer of feta. Season with pepper to taste, and drizzle with the oil. Repeat with additional layers to use all of the peppers, basil and feta.

Top with the Parmigiano-Reggiano and a few grinds of pepper. Bake 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has browned lightly. Serve hot.

Serves four.

Cook's note: This pretty side dish would make a nice accompaniment to roast chicken or pork.
