1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place whole peppers on sheet and roast until soft and blistered, turning once (20 minutes). Cover with foil and let cool until safe to handle (10 minutes).
2. When peppers are cool, peel the peppers. Skins should rub off easily. Remove stems and seeds and chop.
3. Heat olive oil in saucepan over medium heat. Saute garlic and onions until translucent (4-5 minutes).
4. Whisk in flour and cook for 30 seconds. Add evaporated milk in one smooth stream, whisking constantly. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Simmer until thickened (1-2 minutes).
5. Add roasted peppers. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced to desired consistency, whisking occasionally (10-15 minutes). Remove from heat. Add pepper to taste. Garnish with basil, if using.
