Expert Tips

To bump up the flavor, try using a flavored olive oil.

Make a sauce by melting 2 tablespoons butter and stirring in chopped, drained roasted red bell peppers from a 7-oz jar. To serve, microwave the sauce uncovered on High 30 seconds. Stir, then microwave 30 to 45 seconds longer or until hot.
