Wash the peppers, cut them in half and remove the seeds. Cut lengthwise into lots of strips. Lightly brown the garlic in the oil for a few minutes, add the peppers and cook for about 15 minutes to soften them. Mix in the washed halved tomatoes, cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the lid, add salt and reduce most of the liquid. Moments before removing from the heat, add the chopped basil. Serve immediately accompanied with slices of bread.
