Pepperonata is an Italian dish made with lots of peppers, some sweet onion, garlic, a touch of sugar, and vinegar. Everything is cooked together until you get a deep pepper flavor with a nice hint of vinegar and sweetness. Normally it is used as a side dish or condiment but I personally love it as a main dish with polenta, spaghetti squash, rice, or pasta. You can use any peppers but I recommend reaching for red, yellow, and orange peppers for a sweeter dish.
