Question of the Day: Can roasted red peppers be substituted for pimentos?
Quick Answer: Roasted red peppers are often substituted for pimentos in stuffed olives (and other recipes that call for them). In fact, most people that have used both agree that red bell peppers are the closest replacement for pimentos out there (taste-wise). The only difference is that, depending on your batch of bell peppers, they may be a bit less mellow than pimento.
