Roasted Heart

Found this in my files...sounds a little time consuming, but well worth it. Here's what the original poster (?) had to say: "This is probably the recipe that I am most proud of in this collection of 100+ Halloween recipes. It is the piece de resistance. It looks great, tastes heavenly, and can even be gross for the kids. It can be elegant, or it can be kitsch. It works on a lot of levels. The recipe is very simple and quick to make. I have it down to under half an hour from start to finish (we like it so much we make it a lot, except that we use a low fat tomato sauce instead). The glossy slightly moist bright red pepper looks exactly like a heart. The consistancy as you cut into the dish is very realistic as well. The red sauce oozing out is just the frosting on the cake. There really is only one thing to be careful about, and that is making sure that you be very careful when peeling the red pepper to keep it intact. It is essential to the whole effect of the dish that the "heart" looks whole. For a more "bloodlike" sauce, add some red food coloring to deepen the color, maybe with one small drop of black for depth. Enjoy!"
