This is another recipe I made a lot before The-Girl-Who-Hates-Vegetables joined us. One of our favotite summer dinners with a nice hunk of bread. I also added some tomato paste to this to reduce the acidity. Came from We're Cooking Now - an old cooking show circa 1985.

OK, I loved how this turned out. But that was only after I added salt (1 1/2 teaspoons) and ground coriander (1/2 teaspoon), upped the tomatoes (3 cups) and fresh basil (1/4 cup), and looked at a couple other recipes to figure out how much olive oil to use (1/3 cup). I think this would have been a bit bland as written. It was great with some changes, though. Thanks for the basic recipe!

I have a house full of guests for the Fourth and a garden bursting at the seams. We had this last night and it was a delicious vegetarian meal. I added a touch of salt. The herbs accentuated the flavors of the fresh vegetables. I served it over rice. So delicious. Thanks MEP.

Mm!mm! I added extra tomatoes, and gave the eggplant a head start in the frying pan, 'cause if there is anything I can't stand it's al-dente eggplant. I also used three big but pretty mild Jalapeno peppers as I can't eat green peppers. This is so delicious, the ultimate comfort food.
