Roasted Sweet Peppers

This is based on the fabulous Delia Smith recipe from her ‘Summer’ cookbook.  I love using the baby peppers and filling them with the mini multicolored heirloom tomatoes when they are in season.  The anchovies are not essential, and I sometimes miss a few peppers in case there is someone who refuses to eat them, but for me they add a wonderful depth to a dish that is already full of wonderful summer flavors.
