About this recipe: This recipe uses red peppers, black pepper, dried chillis and lots of Parmesan cheese, but less basil than most pesto recipes. The predominant flavour is sweet red pepper. It's excellent toasted with bread under the grill or tossed with pasta. The pesto keeps up to 3 days in the fridge.

  • 4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 80g chopped red pepper
  • 10g fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • ground black pepper to taste
