1.5 lbs sweet peppers, seeded and cut into fairly thin strips
2 medium onions, slice into half-moons, same thickness as peppers
1/4 cup olive oil
1.5 lbs tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp hot red pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
Salt

Heat a large, lidded pot over medium-high. Add oil, then peppers and onions. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are softened. Add all other ingredients, stir, and bring to a boil (this will happen very quickly). Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for about 20 minutes (tomatoes should be entirely broken down) stirring occasionally. Remove cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook to desired consistency. Serves 4-6.
