Add the minced garlic, stir briefly, then add the pepper slices. Sauté until the pepper is tender, about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time.
  • While the pepper is cooking, rinse the tomatoes and chop them into small cubes.
  • When the pepper is tender, add the tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Continue cooking for another 15-20 minutes, until the tomatoes have totally dissolved to make a sauce. Add the chopped basil and a pinch of Espelette pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Add a fried egg to garnish (optional). Serve warm or hot. You can also use it as a side dish to meat or fish, in an omelet, or as a topping for pasta.
