Stir in the pepper strips & sweat them over low heat for 20 to 25 minutes. Add the tomatoes & salt & cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Put the mixture in a food processor & pulse about 30 times. DO NOT PUREE. If it seems too moist, add the breadcrumbs. Serve either as an antipasto, or as a main dish with pasta or polenta.
