Roasted Peppers with Herbs

Here is the side dish we had with the baked rigatoni. It is a simple dish that can bake along side the rigatoni and delivers a garlicky-herby burst of flavour. You could always just put some pesto in these, but I did not have any on hand.

- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 orange pepper
- 1 large garlic cloves, cut in wafer thin slivers
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp dried basil
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. Cut peppers in half and remove seeds. Distribute garlic slivers evenly between the four halfs.
2. Mix together oil with basil, oregano, yeast, salt and pepper. Put 1/4 of mixture into each pepper half.
3. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 mins, until peppers are browned but still have some firmness.
