  • When the mix start to wilt, add tomatoes, remaining garlic, ¼ of a cup of lukewarm water, fresh parsley, dried oregano. Cover, cook at medium low heat for a few minutes, stirring few times. Uncover, medium heat, stir well, sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle some olive oil over the mix, let it cook 3 more minutes.
  • Turn off the heat, add as final touch a good handful chopped fresh basil. (If you like peppers with a lot of crunch, cooking time should be around 12-15 minutes, if you like them stewed, as Italians do, cooking time should be at least 20 minutes).
