Pound the basil leaves and pine nuts in a pestle and mortar.
In the bowl of a food processor put all the ingredients, including the basil pesto, and mix and bind the dough together. Wrap dough in clingfilm and chill.

Meanwhile prepare the confit tomatoes. Cut each tomatoes lengthways in half. Lay the tomatoes in a oven paper lined baking tray, facing up. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic, oregano and fresh herbs to your taste.

Sprinkle tomatoes with sugar and bake at 150ºC for 1 hour. The tomatoes have to dry out, if the oven  temperature seems to hot reduce it accordingly. When tomatoes are ready fry the small peppers.
