Capponata is a southern Italian dish and part of the Mediterranean diet. It\'s similar to rattatouille but baked instead of cooked on top of a stove. I find it much more favourful and the vegetable retain their shape. It can be used as a side with meat or fish or eaten alone with crusty Italian bread. I hope you enjoy it!
2-3 baby eggplants
2 medium zucchini
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 medium potatoes
1 large tomatoe
3 cloves of garlic
sprig of fresh oregano (or 1 tspē dried)
1 tspē hot pepper flakes (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut all vegetables into cubes. Combine all vegetables and spices into an 11 x 14 in. glass baking dish. Add the oil. It may seem like a lot but the amount of vegetables warrants it. Bake for about one hour, stirring occasionally.
Serves about 6 people.
