  • 1 medium red onion, sliced

1. Heat the olive oil in a large lidded frying pan over a high heat and add the red onion and yellow peppers. Fry on a high heat for a couple of minutes then reduce the heat, put the lid on and sweat the vegetables for 10 minutes until they are soft and lightly coloured.

5. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve with chunky bread.
