Create a romantic romp in Italy with this traditional Sicilian fare. Its distinctly Sicilian aromas are guaranteed to entice your taste buds and tempt the senses. Often used as an antipasto, served room temperature, it works wonders as a shining main course as well.


Ingredients


½ cup olive oil


2 cups diced celery


One medium eggplant cut into ¾ inch cubes


One large onion, chopped

Two large tomatoes, diced


1 cup water


1 tablespoon capers, drained


¼ cup Spanish olives with pimentos


One can sliced, ripe olives

Add the vinegar, sugar, tomatoes, and water into the pan and cook for five minutes. Return the celery, eggplant and onion to the pan—add capers, olives, and parsley. Lastly, add salt to taste and simmer uncovered for twenty minutes. Serve and enjoy!
