Recipe by -Sylvie-

I found this recipe in a cookbook full of healthy Medditerranean dishes and have adapted it a little so it would suit the ingredients I had on hand. It's great as a side, with meat or fish, or you can serve it as a thick sauce over your favourite pasta. It can be eaten hot or cold. You can also change the quantities of vegetables and use more of one and less of the other, or try adding mushrooms for example. It adapts well to whatever is in your fridge.

Very good recipe! Easy to make, harder to prep for. I suggest prepping first... Made this for my fiance as an entree & served over couscous... good stuff! Would make it again!
