Question of the Day: Are pimentos roasted red peppers?

Quick Answer: Pimentos can be roasted red peppers, because pimentos are red peppers (and they can be roasted). However, roasted red peppers and pimentos are not always one and the same (because pimentos are only one of many red pepper species that may be roasted). That said, many of the mild red pepper types taste extremely similar to roasted pimentos.
