      I can't give you five stars yet, because I have not made this, But this recipe sounds much closer to what I am looking for than those others posted. simple pantry ingredients, and a short list of them. As soon as I read this, I knew these were the flavors that I have loved in Caponata since I was young. I will be tryng this tonight! Thank you.
