Eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, onions, tomatoes, garlic, and olives cooked until they melt together. Literally. Could anything be more delicious? This recipe is a blend of a traditional Italian Caponata that normally calls for eggplant, with a Spanish Pisto that would traditionally use summer squash. It is meant to be eaten smeared on bread which I did but it is also great on it’s own as a salad. I served mine topped with some roasted tomatoes and Parmesan cheese, and have been eating it for lunch the past couple of days.
