How to roast a red pepper

so, i came across an 'easy' recipe that called for roasted red pepper and what do you know? i didn't have any! but i did have a fresh red pepper and google. YAY!
here's how you roast a red pepper:

1. preheat oven to 500
2. quarter your red pepper, de-seed it and cut out the white membrane.
3. place on a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil.

4. bake until the skins are blisted and black (my oven did it in about 20 minutes).

5. put the red peppers in a bowl and cover with a tea towel.

6. when the peppers cool simply peel off the skins.

That's it! See, easy-peasy!

Mine ended up in the Cuisinart with fresh parsley. :)
