I also roasted the eggplant as others have suggested. Added more onion and garlic because we like them. Didn't have any red wine open so I used some dry vermouth which worked fine. Based on another recipe I looked at before deciding on this one, I also added some capers and olives. Really good - DH liked it a lot.

This was very tasty! I also roasted the eggplant, and cooked in the slowcooker on low @ 7-8 hours. I added the whole green pepper, 4 garlic cloves, and a cup of wine, and a can of tomato paste. The only reason its 4 stars instead of 5 is because after 4 hours, the consistency looked brothy and i like it thick, hence the tomato paste. then a tablespoon of sugar to cut the acidity, but the flavor was wonderful!

This is a culinary delight! I used this recipe but added a few items from another recipe namely, a small can of tomato paste and I used white wine instead of red because that's what I had opened - absolutely delicious over pasta. I also roasted the eggplant as suggested by Caroine Cooks but didn't put it in the food processor.
