  5. Cook for 10 more minutes, while stirring, and then remove from the heat. Season the sauce with salt and nutmeg and leave it aside.
  6. Add the peppers over a hot grill, and cook them for about 3 minutes per side, until they begin to soften.

  8. Chop the grilled peppers and mix them with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
