1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 tsp. No Salt salt free alternative
2 cups onion, chopped
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 large red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
3 medium zucchini (1 pound), cut in half and sliced
4 Tbsp. fat free caesar italian dressing
(We used Kraft Caesar Italian Fat Free Anything Dressing.)
3 Tbsp. dried basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
1 can (4.25 oz.) chopped olives
3 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
2. Cover and cook on high for about 3 hours. It's finished when the vegetables are tender but still hold their shape.
3. Mix in the three remaining ingredients of tomato paste, chopped olives and fresh basil. Then you can serve it hot, warm or chilled. We like putting it on top of a small slice of French bread or a toasted mini-bagel.
Yield: 6 Servings
You can freeze individual portions for easy re-heating later.
Microwave for approximately 3-4 minutes. Keep the container open a little to allow steam to escape.
