Ingredients
  • 2 red peppers, de-seeded and quartered
  • 4 vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Anchovy fillets, drained (optional)
  • 300g Asda Extra Special Tenderstem Broccoli
  • 2 x 60g packs Asda Parma Ham
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Method
  • Pre-heat the grill. Cook the peppers, skin side up, until they blacken and blister. Put in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 1 minute. Pour off the water.

  • Peel the skin off the tomatoes and peppers. Halve the tomatoes, scoop out the seeds and discard.

  • Heat the oil in a pan and fry the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the peppers, tomatoes, anchovies (if using) and 100ml water. Cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the broccoli and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Wrap up the broccoli, 2 or 3 stems and a time, in the Parma ham and put in an ovenproof fish. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes until the ham is crispy.

  • To serve, blend the vinegar and red sauce into a purée. Reheat the sauce and serve with the broccoli.
