Preparation -- 20 minutes

Finely cut the onion and garlic cloves. DICE the red bell pepper, but not too small. HEAT olive oil in the casserole on medium heat and sauté the onion and bell pepper. Turn down the heat to low and let them soften for about 10 minutes.

Turn up the heat a bit and ADD the garlic, cumin and paprika powder. STIR and cook for another 3 minutes on medium heat. Meanwhile, PRE-HEAT the oven to 190 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the canned tomatoes to the casserole and let it simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. If you've used whole canned tomatoes, make sure to cook them until they are in smaller pieces.
