Directions1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the red peppers in half, leaving the stems intact. Remove the seeds and white pith.
2. Using an immersion mixer or food processor, process the anchovies, garlic, capers, parsley, olive paste and oil until smooth. Divide the mixture into the four pepper halves.
